What we're about

Entrepreneurs & Professionals, with Disabilities Network MeetUp is presented by Access 2 Accessibility (A2A). We want to help support, empower, encourage, network and be a resource for career minded people with visible, and invisible, disabilities. If you are currently an entrepreneur/professional or considering to become one soon then come join like minded individuals. Many successful individuals have visible, and hidden, disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, depression, anxiety and more. Our disabilities don't define us, together we can support one another, share, network etc. to help each other in our professional endeavours.
