Whether at school, work or play we are spending time in the digital world. Websites, APPs and social media are an integral part of our culture; we can all agree that ensuring independent, timely, and seamless access for all members of our digital community is the right thing to do - but how do we get there?

Join Eve Hill<https://www.browngold.com/attorneys/pdfs/eve_hill.pd>, Co-Lead for Inclusivity<https://inclusivity.consulting/%3e> and Tom Sikora<https://www.linkedin.com/in/tom-sikora/>, Director of Accessibility at Workday<https://www.workday.com/#menu> for a dialogue exploring the meaning and value of digital inclusion as well as the pragmatics of how to move toward that goal. A moderated discussion and audience questions will identify the parameters for a thoughtful, balanced, sustainable approach; describe the commitment and the resources necessary to ensure seamless access; and begin to answer the question, “How do we get there?”

*This year’s Ethel Louise Armstrong Lecture is part of the 2018 COMPAS<https://cehv.osu.edu/technology> series focusing on Technology. The series promotes sustained reflection on the ethical challenges that unify various projects within Ohio State's Discovery Themes Initiative; providing a model of informed and constructive discussion that is too often absent from public discourse and that universities are in a unique position to promote..


Hosted by The Ohio State University’s ADA Coordinator’s Office<https://ada.osu.edu/%3e> the Multiple Perspectives Conference is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Ethel Louise Armstrong Endowment Fund and ongoing support from The Ohio State University.
