24 Accessibility

One of the biggest barriers to accessibility is awareness. We often hear how diversifying our workforce is good for business. I would like to examine why disabilities should be a part of that formula. When developers are tasked with making something accessible, chances are none of them has ever encountered someone with a disability, so they don’t even know where to begin. By having a diverse workforce that includes people with disabilities, you improve the quality of the product and get accessibility into the product life cycle much sooner.

Due to the University’s 501(c)(3) status and because we are a state entity, there are legal restrictions around the types of political activities campus employees can engage in on behalf of UC Berkeley. When engaging on issues, generally informational activities are permissible while campaign activities on behalf of candidates or ballot initiatives are not.
