Thursday, January 30, 2020
8:00AM – 9:00AM ET
Assistive Technology Industry Association (ATIA) Conference
How do we respond to the changing pressures in the provision of assistive technology? The term leadership is used frequently, but with little discussion of what we mean by effective leadership in the field, and with leaders emerging in different sectors and markets. In challenging times this leadership strand spotlight asks four influential figures in the field to share their perceptions of the current and future needs for AT leadership and to highlight one figure they respect and would recognize as a leader. The panel will also consider how we develop the next generation of AT leaders to meet future demands.
