About this event

About the Event

“The difference between equity and equality is that equality is everyone gets the same thing and equity is everyone gets the things they deserve.” – DeRay Mckesson

According to the CDC, around 61 million in the US live with a disability as of 2018. Some of these disabilities are obvious, while some are hidden.

Any conversation about diversity, equity, and inclusion has to involve people with disabilities. We cannot create an equitable society if we exclude them. As allies, we need to make every effort to create spaces where a person with disability, whether it’s visible or hidden, can feel welcome and safe.

Our goal for this event is to help you become more comfortable with the topic of disability so you can engage your colleagues, clients, and community with confidence.
