Our partner, Dr. Hoby Wedler, recently presented in a panel discussion consisting of blind scientists at the 8th International Assembly of Women and Girls at the United Nations Global Headquarters in New York, NY. Meeting up with Csaba Kőrösi, President of UN General Assembly, has been an incredible achievement. This is a significant milestone for Hoby and Emotitech, as it highlights our commitment to promoting inclusivity in the world of science.
Hoby is part of a coalition called "Science in Braille," which is a division of the Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT). This coalition aims to promote the accessibility of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) literacy and education for all, including those who are blind or partially sighted. As an accomplished blind scientist, Hoby's work made him the perfect candidate to be part of this coalition.
Being invited to participate in such an exclusive conference at the United Nations Global Headquarters is an extraordinary achievement. It is a testament to Hoby's knowledge and passion for science. We are incredibly proud of his accomplishment.
Hoby's participation in the Science in Braille campaign is not only a personal achievement but also a significant step towards promoting inclusivity in STEM fields. It's inspiring to see professionals in STEAM fields coming together with people with lived experiences of being blind or partially sighted. This coalition is an excellent example of how we can break down barriers and create a more inclusive and accessible society.
In conclusion, we believe that Hoby’s participation in the Science in Braille campaign is both exciting and important. We are excited to see what the future holds for Hoby and the coalition, and we look forward to promoting accessibility and inclusivity in science for all.
