Event Details

On International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we will have the opportunity to learn stories of inclusive innovation from artists, entrepreneurs, and operators.

Is there a way to make a social impact through the design of the workspace? Yes. Through art, universal design, and intentional purchasing companies can attract and retain talent, spark creativity, and achieve ESG goals.

Social Entrepreneur, Liz Powers, will share her story of why she started ArtLifting and how she scaled it to a company with over 170 artists in 33 states who have earned over $4M through the sale of their artworks to over 400 corporate clients like Google.

Artists Aimee Hofmann (New York) and Lisa Murphy (Boston) will share why they create art, their innovative approaches, and why it is important their art is experienced in corporate spaces.

Operations Lead for Google Accessibility, Adam Stoves, will share insights as to why creating more accessible offices is a priority for Google and their four-point program to improve current offices and build better in the future.

Come join us! Inclusive innovation and universal design makes business and life better for all.

Moderated by: Matt Segneri, Bruce and Bridgitt Evans Executive Director of the Harvard Innovation Labs
