RTP180: Accessibility

Learn about digital inclusion, access to art, equity in education and more!

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!

We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds on stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?

Accessibility is the quality of being usable, reachable and obtainable. At this month’s event, we are looking at systems from an accessibility lens and discussing how different communities experience the many facets of our world. Our speakers will share on digital inclusion, access to art, equity in education and more! Network over complimentary popcorn, Fullsteam RTP beer, and RTP Uncorked wine selections.
