Pam Mayer, Product Accessibility Specialist Manager at Workday

Meryl spoke at Workday’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) in May 2023. Her talk was one of the highlights of the multi-day event and wove together honesty, humor, and empathy to share her unique perspective and experience. She punctuated her talk with real-life examples of digital accessibility – and the trouble it causes when missing. She ended with the rallying cry, “Progress over Perfection!” to acknowledge none of us is perfect and we’re all on this journey together. I’d highly recommend her as a speaker at your next event. Her message has a way of staying with you and encouraging change in its wake.
