Autonomous Vehicles and Accessibility: Delivering on the Promise

Join digital HKS and the Disability Justice Caucus, a student group at Harvard Kennedy School, for a panel discussion with leading disability rights advocates and autonomous vehicle experts about how autonomous vehicles (AVs) will impact the future of transportation for Americans with disabilities. The rise of AVs represents an opportunity to improve transportation for those who face some of the biggest barriers to mobility: the millions of Americans with physical, sensory, and or cognitive disabilities. What do advocates and policymakers need to know to make sure the technology delivers on this promise?
This event is free and open to the public. Food will be served. Panelists will include:
  • Carol Tyson, Government Affairs Liaison with the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund
  • Henry Claypool, Tech Policy Consultant, American Association of People with Disabilities
  • Gina O'Connell, Co-Founder of Comet Mobility, an AV company focusing on accessibility
This is intended to be an accessible event. Please reach out to katie.monroe@gmail.com with accommodation requests.
