Register now: 6th Annual Accessible Technology Symposium

Registration is now open for the sixth Accessible Technology Symposium!

The annual Access for All: Accessible Technology Symposium will be held Thursday, April 16, 2020, in the Shriver Center on the Oxford campus.

Bree Callahan

This year’s keynote speaker is Bree Callahan, the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator for the University of Washington. Callahan provides leadership, coordination, and oversight to ensure accessibility is a key focus of UW’s strategic mission. Callahan will speak about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which is turning 30 years old this June, and how it has transformed the landscape of accessibility practices—and where we go from here.

In previous years, symposium keynote speakers have illuminated the importance of incorporating universal design principles into everything we do and teach. Attendees gathered from across the University and across the state to discuss trends, issues, and victories we’ve seen when considering universal design. This year will be no different!

This free symposium is open to the entire Miami community and will cover a broad range of breakout session topics from Social Media to STEM to Procurement and beyond. For classified staff, this event is worth up to five job enrichment points. For a full list of session titles and descriptions, as well as the event schedule, please visit

Please join us for the symposium and add your voice to the chorus!
