Molly McConville

Molly McConville is a Policy Fellow in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for people with disabilities.

McConville is a rising senior at Miami University where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in international studies with a concentration in global cultural studies. She has a minor in Spanish and spent a junior semester studying in Barcelona through the Council on International Educational Exchange.

On campus, McConville is an active member of Best Buddies International, a program that connects individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to friends, employment opportunities, leadership development programs and living arrangements.

Her passion for disability rights stems from her personal relationships with family members and friends living with physical and intellectual disabilities and witnessing firsthand the discrimination they experience. McConville joined RespectAbility because of her belief that people with disabilities deserve the same opportunities as anyone else. She is looking forward to helping advance rights for people with disabilities while gaining experience in public policy, enhancing her professional writing skills and learning from professionals in the fields of business, disability and government.

McConville’s passions include traveling, pursuing social justice for disadvantaged populations and volunteering with the charity her family established, In the Name of the Mother. This organization raises funds for impoverished mothers who are fighting cancer, providing them with financial assistance for rent, utilities, medical needs, food, wigs, clothing and more.

After graduation, McConville hopes to teach English in South America before moving back to Washington, D.C. to pursue a career advocating for marginalized communities.
