Chairman's Awards for Advancements in Accessibility

Each year individuals, organizations, industries, and government put forth new ideas to make communication tools easier to use and more accessible to more people. Sometimes these ideas are noticed, sometimes not. The Chairman's Awards recognize annually those outstanding efforts in the private and public sector, as well as public-private partnerships, that advance accessibility. This includes the development of individual mainstream or assistive technologies introduced into the marketplace, the development of standards or best practices that foster accessibility, or the development of a new consumer clearinghouse of disability-related products and services.

What Advancements are Eligible for Chairman's Awards?

  • The Awards recognize those advancements which include development of individual mainstream or assistive technologies introduced into the marketplace, the development of standards or best practices that foster accessibility, or the development of a new consumer clearinghouse of disability-related products and services.
