You are invited to participate in the Virtual 2020 Interagency Accessibility Forum (IAAF) October 6 - October 7, 2020. This October will be National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) 2020. This year marks not only the 75th observance of NDEAM, but also the 30th anniversary of the ADA. Both milestones are being commemorated with a range of events and activities centered on the theme "Increasing Access and Opportunity”

 

The virtual forum features inspirational keynote speakers such as Thomas Harkin, former United States Senator, who in 1990, introduced the ADA in the Senatewhich was signed by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990). Janet Dhillon, Chair of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is also a featured keynote speaker.

Virtual panel discussion will focus on 3 areas: Customer Experiences & Content Creation, Acquisition & Program Management, and Innovation.  In addition, the forum will include virtual exhibits from 24 IT companies with accessibility programs and services, who will display how their products and services support those with disabilities.  
 

We are expecting at least 400 attendees from both the federal and private sectors, who are coming together to learn, share, demonstrate, and encourage accessibility of information and communication technology. IAAF 2020 will be co-hosted by the U.S. General Services Administration and the U.S. Census Bureau.
