When speaking to businesses ,adding Accessibility to Diversity Equity and Inclusion, an IDEA worth Spreading.is what John Samuel is all about. As CEO of ABLR Works, John talks about a new program that they have developed to teach Blind and Visually Impaired students to become Digital Accessibility Testers.
ABLR Works has teamed up with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Services for the Blind (DSB) to kick off the statewide initiative this month. With this model, John hopes the programs at ABLR Works will spread across the States.
John talks about his Blindness journey and embracing his disability/authentic self and the release of his new book, “Don’t Ask the Blind guy for Directions: A 30,000-Mile Journey for Love, Confidence, and a Sense of belonging”.
