There are over 1.3 billion people with disabilities around the world and 200 million youth with disabilities. Despite legislative measures and assistive technologies, there continues to be a big gap in education and employment opportunities for students with disabilities, especially in fields such as STEM. These challenges arise due to such factors as inaccessibility of study material, attitudinal barriers and lack of awareness. Recent advances in technology, however, makes it possible for students with disabilities to pursue several careers on an equal basis as others.
At I-Stem, our vision is to empower students and professionals with disabilities to realize their potential with a special focus on the STEM fields. We do this through hands-on activities and initiatives, training, mentorship, technical research, and a strong community. We also work closely with universities and corporates to help them realize the potential of people with disabilities and include them in their organizations, thereby creating an inclusive ecosystem.
