Agenda June 11th 10am EST

Karen Ottoni

Dear SI-SIG Community,

Here is the agenda and meeting details for our next call:
  1. Introductions: Who's new to the group or call? Let's get to know each other and what we're working on in the 'blockchain for impact' world
  2. Debate & Discussion: Accessibility. Dan Middleton, Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee Chair recently brought up the topic of accessibility in our mailing list. This is an oft neglected topic and perspective and it'd be great to engage this group in a discussion around it. We've invited Laurie Henneborn, Managing Director in Research at Accenture to share with us her experience and perspective on diversity and inclusion, blockchain, and accessibility. Please take a look at her recent HBR article on disability inclusion. Below are a few other background articles on this topic in the blockchain sector as well:
    1. Blockchain Accessibility - The Importance of Digital Accessibility
    2.  The Accessibility issue more people with disabilities should think about
    3. Bitcoin needs to be more accessible for the visually impaired
    4. The Secret World of Disabled Gamers
    5. Smart Cities could be lousy to live in if you have a disability
  3. Presentation: World Vision and Scantrust collaboration in East Timor
  4. Miscellaneous: Share any comments, ideas, announcements, upcoming events.
As always, please feel free to engage outside of our calls on this mailing list, chat, or the wiki. I will be out on PTO this Tuesday, so Alissa Worley will be leading our call.
