Disability Education & Accessibility: Overcoming the Digital Divide
When hitting a roadblock, Janet Fiore’s motto is always, “We can figure this out,” and that’s precisely what she did in the realm of disability education. Having a fear of getting it wrong or trying to figure out where to start was a challenge, and the results often lead to overcompensating or overreaching. Janet has cultivated a safe space for learners in The Sierra Group’s DisabilityEtiquette© course and DisabilityRecruiter© Certification. During this podcast, Janet discusses her initial draw to assistive technology, the work of The Sierra Group and its foundation and role in the disability space, and how employers can remove the obstacles to have a fully inclusive workforce.
