Event Details

Disability sometimes makes people uncomfortable and there are assumptions that become barriers to including disability as part of the diversity dialogue. The 4 steps to being a disability ally debunks misconceptions in a safe and open space to challenge stereotypes and reframe perceptions. Interactive activities and conversations open everyone to inclusion in a new way. 


Brittany Dejean, founder of AbleThrive, will lead a disability allyship training to teach individuals and organizations how to empower and advocate for people with diverse abilities. 

AbleThrive  is a one-stop platform for people with disabilities and their families to access curated and customized resources from around the world. For more information:

Brittany Déjean is an award-winning social entrepreneur seeking to enable people with disabilities and change the way the world sees ability. 

Brittany, founded AbleThrive, a user-generated, how-to video and information support network that helps people with disabilities adapt their lives. After her father was paralyzed in a car accident, Brittany saw that learning from others facing similar challenges helped her family adapt to their situation, and she envisioned using technology to replicate such support globally for all disabilities. In 2007, she was accepted into the Harvard Kennedy School's Social Entrepreneurship Collaboratory, where her venture received recognition from Harvard Business School Pitch for Change and Ashoka YouthVenture. A 2008 Harvard University graduate, Brittany also volunteered with disability communities in China and Africa, giving her a sense of the common struggles for people with disabilities across geographic areas. Brittany co-founded and developed, a pilot resource serving the paralysis community, as a side project for seven years, publishing her work in Huffington Post and in disability magazines. In 2013, she left her job as a teacher and coach to devote herself to uniting and empowering a global disability community.

This event is made possible by the generous support of the Lewis Family.

Co-sponsored by the C.A.R.E. Center at CMC.
