Technological innovation can help break down the barriers to success people with disabilities can face in the workplace, a disability activist says.

Casar Jacobson is an entrepreneur and disability activist, and a former Miss Canada. She was at UN Headquarters for a panel discussion celebrating International Women's Day, marked on March 8.

She spoke to Lucy Dean about her work as a disability advocate and began by providing an example of the challenges people with disabilities can face in conference environments.
