Building Awareness by Hosting a Panel of Students with Disabilities

Hosting a panel presentation featuring computing students with disabilities is a great way to help students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders learn about the challenges that students with disabilities face in education and employment, including their use of information technology. Student panel presentations can be part of a larger workshop on disability and inclusion, featured during diversity celebrations, hosted as a standalone meeting, or facilitated during a regularly held department meeting, seminar, or class.


The OurCS@UW+AccessComputing workshop, a two-day research-focused workshop for undergraduate women with disabilities in computing fields, was held April 11 – 13, 2019 at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. The workshop aimed to increase the participation of women with disabilities in computer science research.
