David Richman

David Richman was a Stigma and Communications Fellow with
RespectAbility, where he worked on the #RespectTheAbility stigma campaign that spotlights model companies that demonstrate how hiring workers with disabilities benefits the employer, the employee and society. He also wrote about fair media representation of people with disabilities.

As someone who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of 11, his life has been affected by disability personally. Ridding the stigma around anyone with cognitive and physical differences is of the utmost importance to him.

Before joining RespectAbility, Richman was a congressional district office intern for Congressman John Delaney and has extensive experience in the field of broadcasting. He has interned for Sirius XM, Batlimore NPR, and Pacifica. Outside of work his biggest passion is learning and performing long form improv which has taught him the importance of collaborating with a variety of people with different backgrounds and minds to accomplish a common goal.

In May of 2014, he attained his Bachelors of Arts in English at The University of Maryland-College Park.
