About Debra Ruh 

When told by "experts" that her daughter, Sara, who was born with Down's Syndrome, would be lucky to push shopping carts at the local grocery store, Debra Ruh refused to accept this. When she told friends and family that she was going to start a for profit organization that would help companies see the worth and potential in hiring disabled employees, she was met with skepticism. Why not start a nonprofit? And could such an idea be feasible? Debra's unshakable faith in the power of human potential and her love for her daughter, led her to create Tec-Access.  TecAccess was a ICT Accessibility firm and the majority of employees were technologists with disabilities.

By 2011, Debra had built TecAccess into a multi-million-dollar firm but realized that her mission was not yet complete. Convinced that "the real disability is being unable to see human potential" she went on to create Ruh Global and is a global disability inclusion strategist. She consults to Fortune 100 companies and nations including Kenya, Oman, Egypt and the Bahamas. Her daughter, Sara, is an internationally renowned keynote and motivational speaker who travels the world inspiring and encouraging others to follow their dreams."
