At the beginning of May we asked Liz Williams, General Manager of Sustainable Business at BT, what sponsoring the Tech4Good Awards means to BT, and to say a few words on why she believes technology has the power to transform communities.
“It’s about the individuals, it’s about young people, it’s about old people, it’s about people who are in need or people who are socially excluded. Technology is the thing that really can make a difference transforming lives across the world.”
In this short video Liz looks at previous winners of the Tech4Good Awards, including LexAble, who won the Accessibility Award in 2012. She also looks at how much of an impact other previous winners are having on their local community, how they are improving people’s lives and how they are making the world more accessible for those living with disabilities.
