Maysoon Hamarsheh

My name is Maysoon Hamarsheh. I am an advocate for the rights of persons with disabilities and a consultant on accessibility and inclusive design. I have experience in monitoring, evaluation and field work. I have worked in the Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as Acting Director of the Directorate of Accessibility and Inclusive Design which specialized in the subject of accessibility for persons with disabilities in facilitating their easy access to public and private places.

Through my position, I worked with the Ministry of Labor in monitoring and evaluating the accessibility of the work environment, Ministry of Education on schools, and Ministry of Works and Independent Electoral Commission through field visits, evaluations and preparing reports.

I am also part of the technical committee that prepared the building codes for persons with disabilities. I have now joined the Accessible Jordan team as an Accessibility Consultant.
