Committee name change: Accessibility Advisory Committee

March 21, 2017

Advisory committee swaps “disability” for “accessibility.” The “Disability, Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee” changed its name to “Accessibility Advisory Committee” on Tuesday. “This is a positive change… more is less,” Stephanie Ozorio said after the committee. “Disability focuses on the pathology, and it gives a connotation of inability – which is wrong. We’re trying to promote the positive aspect… a fully accessible world, not just through physical changes, but through helping people look through the lens of accessibility so that we all, basically, are working from the same level playing field.”
