The 2021 FCC Chair's Awards for Advancement in Accessibility

11:00 am - 4:00 pm EST

The FCC hosted this virtual ceremony presenting the winners of the 11th annual Chair's Award for Advancement in Accessibility (Chair's AAA), on www.fcc.gov/live. Registration was not required for the event.

The previous awards have recognized groundbreaking innovations in technology and practices that improve access for people with disabilities. As a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, telecommunications and remote access have become critically important to many aspects of our lives. The pandemic has also highlighted the vital role that telecommunications services and devices play in ensuring accessibility. This year, the FCC's Chair's AAA honors innovative practices, technologies, and organizations that have creatively leveraged communications and broadband technology during the pandemic, to break down accessibility barriers and ensure that people with disabilities are able to participate equally in our increasingly connected world.
