CREATE Community Day

CREATE Community Day is an annual half-day forum for discussing the concerns about and approaches to sustainable accessibility research and a showcase of research led by CREATE members. Student researchers highlight their work and showcase a variety of individual projects.

Community Day 2024 recap

On May 20th, CREATE’s stakeholders gathered for a lunchtime discussion hosted by Kathleen Quin Voss, CREATE’s Manager of Community Engagement and Partnerships, and two panels with speakers from community organizations and the UW research community. We look forward to sharing video and takeaways from the day.

Panel 1: Disability and Data: Access and Inequalities

An exploration of the positive and negative roles data plays in the lives of people with disabilities and other minority communities.

Panel 2: Title II of the ADA: Rule changes and their impact on education

An exploration of how changes to Title II of the American Disabilities Act, Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability in State and Local Government Services, will impact public education, including the UW. Panelists included:

Research Showcase co-sponsored by HuskyADAPT

After the panels, we had the pleasure of filling the Allen Atrium with the amazing work that CREATE students, CREATE postdocs, and the design teams of HuskyADAPT have done in the field of accessible technology this semester. Their work included projects on an accessible library interface, a wheelchair umbrella, and how people who use visual accessibility technology experience deceptive design.
