Access Israel participated and led various events this month.

Access Israel led three sessions at the Virtual Zero Project Conference, which usually takes place at the United Nations Building in Austria. This year's conference focused on "Inclusive Employment and ICT" and Access Israel organized and led sessions on "Challenges and Technological Solutions of Inclusive Employment during COVID-19", "Let's Dream" and "The Employment Cycle- an Experiential Perspective". Moreover, Access Israel was invited to participate at the "Ambassador's Circle" of the Zero Project. In addition, Yuval Wagner was invited to participate at the session on "Leading Technologies for an accessible world" and "Seeing AI". The sessions were a great success and Access Israel is honored to actively participate at the Zero Project Conference. For more information on the Zero Project, click here.
