The Agami Summit 2022, a three-day residential summit of over 200 innovators, leaders and changemakers, took place from 9 to 11 December. Founder and Executive Director Nidhi Goyal co-facilitated a session held by Enable India around ‘Justice Innovations for Persons with Disabilities’.

Technologists, activists, disabled persons and entrepreneurs came together to imagine new and powerful justice solutions addressing common challenges faced by people with disabilities all over India.

Nidhi presented specifically on barriers to accessing justice faced by women with disabilities. She also suggested solutions that innovators could bring to the table to ease the process of legal awareness for women with disabilities as well as for justice actors, making the process of seeking justice much more simple and inclusive for women with disabilities and people with disabilities.
