#ADA30 Summit: Ensuring Inclusive Communities

Ensuring Inclusive Communities Through Philanthropy

The social sector (philanthropy, nonprofits and public agencies) is a leader in the movement for diversity, equity and inclusion in society. However, only recently has philanthropy identified the need to include people with disabilities in that effort. We learn from top experts who are moving this process forward. Moderated by Stacy Palmer of the Chronicle of Philanthropy, this informative and forward-thinking session’s panel includes: Kym Eisner, of the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation; Stephanie Lomibao, of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation; Jose Luis Plaza, of The California Endowment; and Lisa Trygg, of the May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust.

Moderated by Vivian G. Bass of RespectAbility’s Board of Directors and Debbie Fink of RespectAbility, several of the new speakers, women who reside in New York City, share tips: Lachi, Lauren Arena, Sasha Ross Becker, Ketrina (“Trina”) Hazell, Zazel-Chavah O’Garra, Dr. Nelle Richardson and Abigail Shaw.
