Announcing Tech Inclusion Conference 2016 Programming Agenda

The 2015 Tech Inclusion Conference featured over 137 speakers, over 1000 attendees, several workshops and a career fair with 27 companies. It was a two day, two track conference. We learned a lot since planning last year’s conference, such as more talks about accessibility which lead to the Ability In Tech Summit and taking into consideration one of the biggest requests from attendees last year; a larger space. We’re excited to host the 2016 conference at the Innovation Hangar. Our goal is to double attendance from the 2015 conference.
