Debra Ruh on Practical Solutions for Employers and People with Disabilities
“When told by ‘experts’ that her daughter, Sara, who was born with Down’s Syndrome, would be lucky to push shopping carts at the local grocery store, Debra refused to accept this. Debra’s unshakable faith in the power of human potential and her love for her daughter, led her to create Tec-Access, an ICT Accessibility firm. The majority of their employees were technologists with disabilities. By 2011, Debra had built Tec-Access into a multi-million-dollar firm, but realized that her mission was not yet complete. Convinced that “the real disability is being unable to see human potential” she went on to create Ruh Global and is a global disability inclusion strategist. She consults to Fortune 100 companies and nations including Kenya, Oman, Egypt and the Bahamas. Her daughter, Sara, is an internationally renowned keynote and motivational speaker who travels the world inspiring and encouraging others to follow their dreams.”
