Education & Enablement Manager, IBM Accessibility Research



At IBM, I primarily drive research and analysis for internal initiatives designed to enable IBM product teams in their journey to make their products accessible. I also collaborate with colleagues, clients, partners and universities to integrate, support and promote the IBM accessibility mission.

My current projects include:

  • Strategy, planning, development and maintenance of the Enterprise Accessibility Compliance System (EACS), the corporate-wide system that manages and integrates all aspects of IBM product accessibility starting with recording accessibility test results and performing the calculations necessary to automatically provide the US government-mandated Accessibility Compliance Reports that can be requested by the internal sales teams and external clients for all IBM offerings.
  • Organization, architecture, content preparation, course design and maintenance of a curriculum that provides education across the spectrum of IBM job roles in support of the accessibility mission.
