ATIA 2024 and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Policies across the USA
The Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) is dedicated to the empowerment and inclusion of persons with disabilities. ATIA represents its members who provide technology products and services that improve the lives and independence of people with disabilities.
The discriminatory policies focused on race, LGBTQIA+, and gender equity established in a number of states have no place in our society. We believe marginalized communities, including those with disabilities, must be respected and not further discriminated against.
ATIA will continue to host its 2024 conference in Orlando, Florida and we are committed to making the event positive, inclusive, and anti-discriminatory. Disability crosses every community, and we want to host an event that brings the AT community together. ATIA 2024 will foster opportunities to connect with one another, discover new technologies, and inspire thought-provoking and collaborative experiences that will shape a better future for persons with disabilities.
We will welcome everyone and accommodate all attendees and will not tolerate any type of harassment or discrimination at ATIA 2024. The event will offer various in-person and virtual options for all to participate—regardless of location, cost, or disability. ATIA’s goal is to grow the collective community and build awareness of the power of assistive technology.
Mission: To serve as the global voice of ATIA members, working to provide technology products and services that improve the lives and independence of people with disabilities.
Vision: Empowering a world without barriers for people with disabilities.
