Rising Stars advise newcomers to follow their passion and get involved in the government community
Dana Marlowe’s job at TecAccess LLC has placed her at the nexus where, as she put it, “disability advocacy converges with technology.” She advises government clients on how to abide by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act when buying information technology. That federal mandate requires agencies’ technology to meet certain accessibility rules.
“I talk to them about why it’s important to have [the work space] be made accessible and what they can do to make it accessible,” Marlowe said. “There is also a training component, educating our government clients on how to make their technology accessible.”
