About Shivani Gupta

Shivani Gupta
Shivani Gupta founded AccessAbility following the completion of her M.Sc. in ‘Inclusive Environments — Design and Management’ from the University of Reading, UK. Participating in a ‘Training of Trainers programme on non-handicapping environments for persons with disabilities and the elderly’ organised at the UN ESCAP headquarters in Thailand in the year 2000, was a life-altering moment for her. It changed her perspective towards disability from the medical approach that for inclusion requires the disabled person be fixed, to a social approach where the society needed to become more accessible and inclusive to enable persons with disabilities to participate on an equal bases.
