Innovation Labs are two-day events that bring together people from all walks of life under the principles of Universal Design to dream up the next big idea for people with and without disabilities. By teaching the basics of iterative design and supporting attendees with team facilitators and mentors, we hope to foster in teams an entrepreneurial spirit ingrained with a thoughtfulness toward people with and without disabilities that will bring forth the next generation of innovation.
