Brenden Gilbert        

Deaf Technology Leader, Accessibility & Inclusion Evangelist; AI Expert & Former Meta Engineer

Brenden's journey as a Technology Leader and Accessibility Advocate is rooted in his mother's strong support and belief in his abilities.

As a Deaf person, he experienced firsthand the challenges of a world that oftentimes doesn't consider the needs of people like him. Brenden's mother never allowed these challenges to define him. She constantly reminded Brenden that he could achieve anything he set my mind to, inspiring him to rise above all obstacles.

Today, Brenden is driven to create a digital and physical world where everyone can thrive. He collaborates and partners with companies like VSL Labs, and Convo Communications to revolutionize accessibility through technology.

Brenden seeks to bolster individuals and organizations that share his passion for innovation, inclusion, and making a positive difference. Together, everyone can create a more inclusive and accessible world for people with disabilities.

Connect with him today and explore potential partnerships towards enabling the world to "Include Everyone!™".
