US accessibility expert shares insights with members

Mon 20 November 2017

Jenny Lay-Flurrie is a remarkable woman. As Chief Accessibility Officer (CAO) at Microsoft she is at the forefront of creating positive experiences that apply technology to make a difference for people with disability. She is also the Chair of the US Business Leader Network (USBLN) and an active member of the Washington State Disability Taskforce. And, in October 2014 she was recognised as a ‘Champion of Change’ by the White House. 

This month, Jenny was in Sydney for the Microsoft Summit 2017, and as part of her visit, was generous enough to spend time with our Members at an informal meeting kindly hosted by HAYS. She also met with AND staff to share her vast experience and knowledge with our dedicated team.
