Jamal Mazrui works at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as Deputy Director of the Accessibility and Innovation Initiative. The Initiative, launched by the FCC Chairman in 2010, seeks to facilitate collaborative problem-solving among industry, consumer, and government stakeholders so that people with disabilities can reap the full benefit of broadband communication technologies. To achieve this goal, the Initiative uses techniques of open government such as challenge competitions, developer meet-ups, and shared data about accessible solutions.
Previously, Jamal worked as a legislative analyst at the National Council on Disability, and before that, as a database administrator at the Kennedy School of Government. He graduated with a Bachelor's in operations research from Princeton University in 1986 and with a Master's in public policy from Harvard University in 1988. Information technology and public policy have been strong interests of his, professionally and personally.
From 1988 to 1995, Jamal volunteered as the founding director of the Visually Impaired and Blind User Group of the Boston Computer Society – now an independent, self-help organization that remains active today. In 1995, he received the Leadership award of the Bay State Council of the Blind. In addition, for his efforts to help individuals with disabilities achieve self-actualization and full citizenship, he received the Unsung Hero award at the 2009 MidAtlantic convention of the American Council of the Blind, as well as the Sir Francis Joseph Campbell Award at the 2011 conference of the American Library Association. Jamal has also authored articles published in the Braille Forum and Access World.
