There are still opportunities for your company to sponsor the DEEP Conference. If you are interested in hearing about sponsorship and what it includes, please send me a message!
DEEP is not a typical conference. In the tradition begun in 2012, this event to plan meaningful change will bring together a diversity of fresh perspectives, new ideas, together with seasoned experience, and insight gained from failures and successes. DEEP participants know that digital inclusion is necessary and urgent. We don’t need to persuade each other of the “why”. This allows us to focus our time together during the think tank on the “how”? We will spend our collective time and talents to design strategies, plans, policies, collaborative projects, cross-sector initiatives and new disruptive ways to foster more inclusive prosperity, privacy, and life-long learning.
Become a disrupter!

> • Government Accessible ICT Procurement Policies—recommendations for federal accessible procurement policies will be shared and discussed. Participants will be able to provide input.
> • Cognitive Access & Learning Differences – an area that is not well developed in accessibility legislation and services is the area of cognitive access, yet it is the most prevalent experience of disability. There is a call for Canada to take bold steps in this issue. Participants will help to establish a bold plan.
> • Machine Learning—participants will delve into the challenge of teaching machines and automated systems to recognize and adapt to diversity rather than rely on flawed models of “average humans” that perpetuate social, political, and economic biases.
> • Co-operative Platforms—participants will step through development of a cooperative platform and consider social implications, privacy implications, inclusion aspects and potential barriers.
> Join us for another amazing year of this inclusive, collaborative, disruptive conference. Be a part of the change you want to see.
