UW CSE workshop connects blind college students with professionals

UW CSE logoOn June 2-3, the Empowering Blind Students in Science and Engineering workshop will be held at the Talaris Conference Center. This one-of-a-kind workshop brings together 18 blind undergraduate students from around the country and professionals from a broad range of field – some blind, some not – for one-on-one mentoring and networking. The program will focus on learning from each other to maximize chances for a successful career and on raising awareness of the potential of blind professionals in the workplace.

The event is the brainchild of UW CSE Professor Richard Ladner, who has worked for years in accessibility research.
