Summary

Automation Alley members Verizon share how the combination of the metaverse and the connectivity of 5G could make a notable difference to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility for all.

Molly Burke is a digital creator based in Los Angeles. She’s also been legally blind since the age of 4.

“I’m just a normal 28-year-old woman.
