As the chief accessibility officer at Microsoft, Jenny Lay-Flurrie has helped create a hiring program through which the company identifies and trains people with autism. She ran the first pilot program in 2015 and has since scaled it, holding it four times a year. Lay-Flurrie, who is deaf, has also chaired Microsoft’s Disability Employee Resource Group, and in 2014 was named a “Champion of Change” by the White House for her work. In announcing her appointment as chief accessibility officer in early 2016, Microsoft president and chief legal officer Brad Smith credited Lay-Flurrie with creating a culture of change at the company. Before joining Microsoft’s London office in 2005, Lay-Flurrie worked for T-Mobile and Energis in the U.K.
