Illumination Proclamation – A Fireside Chat about Disability and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

With a growing call for more diversity, equity and inclusion in our communities and workplaces, it is also necessary that we expand this conversation to include disabilities. One in four people will be affected by disability in one way or another during their lifetime, which provides motivation to create spaces that have a foundation in accessibility and inclusion. Stigmas and stereotypes influenced by implicit bias have the ability to impede a person with a disability’s opportunity to participate fully in life. In this webinar, you will learn how disability can impact your daily life, understand the importance of the American’s with Disabilities Act, and how disability should be included in the diversity, equity and inclusion conversation.

Guided by Alycia Anderson and Steve Wunch, you will leave the webinar with:

  • A better knowledge of how disability affects our life
  • Understanding of the American’s With Disabilities Act
  • How disability fits in the discussion of diversity, equity and inclusion
