Mahadeo A. Sukhai, head of Research and the Chief Accessibility Officer at Canadian National Institute for the Blind, will be presenting an accessibility workshop at York University. Titled “Our Voices, Our Experiences: Innovation Through Inclusion in the Sciences,” the workshop will focus on the history of disability in STEM, the stigma and barriers associated with that lived experience, and on a vision for inclusion in the STEM training and research environment.
It will take place on Tuesday, March, 3 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (noon) in room 306, Lumbers Building at the Keele Campus. Those interested in attending this informative workshop are asked to RSVP using this form.
Sukhai is Canada’s only congenitally blind biomedical research scientist. He is an accomplished researcher and scientist, and the leader of national projects to understand the impact of vision loss on social determinants of health, as well as in the context of accessibility and inclusion in employment and education, with a particular focus on STEM.
