Bepartofit HUB and our unique inclusive events!
We’d love you to be part of our events!
And we’d be delighted to help you create some interesting and inclusive opportunities within your community! Let’s inspire each other and break down disability barriers!
The Accessible Tech Hackathon was a two-day (Saturday-Sunday, 18-19 March 2017) event for both professionals and students/recent graduates passionate about accessible design, assistive technologies, IoT, and employment. We will focus on Internet of Things, mobile, Web, UX/UI/AI, Service Design or desktop solutions, or something in between, and hardware.

GiveVision, Seable and BePartOfIt
Monday, 24 August 2015 from 14:30 to 19:00 (BST)
London, United Kingdom
It’s summer time! While Seable brings groups of blind and partially sighted young people together with VICTA to Sicily for holidays abroad and outdoor activities, GiveVision conducts user trials across the country to test its assistive wearable technology for the blind. Bepartofit Hub, the community of inclusion makers, continues to grow, and EvenBreak helps talented disabled people and inclusive employers to find each other.
In the UK, there are hundreds of organisations working with disabled people. Improving accessibility and creating opportunities to improve peoples’ lives is their mission.
Meet Seable, VICTA, GiveVision, Bepartofit Hub, EvenBreak and many more on August 24th at Wayra!
You’ll be able to discover what is out there for the visually impaired, share your own experiences, and gain a better understanding of the accessibility challenges that millions of people face today. The amazing Julian Jackson will facilitate the introductions giving an overview of Fight For Sight work and his speaker network about eye research. We will also hold workshops on specific topics (see agenda below) and afterwards, have time for networking during which there will be live music with blind performers!
This event is free. We will provide all the assistance needed on site as well as catering (tea and biscuits included).
