Tatiana Lee, Inclusionist

Tatiana Lee is an Inclusionist at RespectAbility, a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for and with people with disabilities. Lee also is the voice behind “Accessible Hollywood,” where she highlights her journey as an actress, model and lifestyle influencer born with Spina Bifida. She harnesses the power of social media to speak boldly about accessibility and inclusion in mass media. Lee felt invisible to the rest of society because she did not see anyone that looked like her in popular media growing up in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her passions further and vowed to be the change she wanted to see. She quickly realized that wheelchair accessibility was a major barrier for her and wanted to shed insight on her perspective.

Lee was in one of Apple’s first ad campaigns featuring people with disabilities using Apple’s accessible features and products. She also has appeared in several short films including the 2018 Disability Film Challenge Best Awareness Film “Footloose” and “Coffee with Tim Cook, CEO of Apple.” She also has appeared in modeling campaigns such as #PerfectFigure for Parfait Lingerie. Lee currently attends Upright Citizens Brigade Improv Theater as a two-times Diversity Scholarship recipient. She has dedicated her life to supporting disability inclusion in entertainment, beauty, fashion, fitness, nonprofits and employment.
