The 2021 FCC Chair's Awards for Advancement in Accessibility

11:00 am EST
www.fcc.gov/live

On Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. EST, the FCC will host a 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 is 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.

The meeting will be webcast with open captioning and ASL interpreting at www.fcc.gov/live. Reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities are available upon request. Include a description of the accommodation you will need and tell us how to contact you if we need more information. Make your request as early as possible. Last minute requests will be accepted, but may be impossible to fill. Send an e-mail to: FCC504@fcc.gov or call the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau at 202-418-0530 (voice).
