Developer Ather Sharif will lead this year’s Disability Pride Walk

Sharif will be the grand marshal of the event, a fitting title for a developer who's brought accessibility to the forefront of the local tech conversation.

Ather Sharif will be the grand marshal of Philadelphia’s Disability Pride Walk this June, according to a report from our sister site Generocity. He’ll lead the walk across Market Street on June 18.

Sharif, who became a quadriplegic after a 2013 car accident, has been a vocal advocate of web accessibility, organizing accessibility-focused hackathons and running a web accessibility consultancy called EvoXLabs.

The next evoHaX hackathon is on April 30 and May 1, during Philly Tech Week 2016, just after the Accessible World Conference, which EvoXLabs is bringing to Philadelphia.

When he won Geekadelphia’s Geek of the Year Award last year, he became something of a local tech scene role model, but it’s nice to see Sharif get attention in the broader Philadelphia community.
