Thanks to the generous support of the New York Women’s Foundation (NYWF) and the Coca-Cola Foundation, RespectAbility is launching the Women’s Disability Leadership, Inclusion & Advocacy Series for women and girls with disabilities and their allies.

This opportunity is for women and girls who have a visible or invisible disability, and their allies. Invisible disabilities include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, mental health conditions, chronic pain, TBIs, and learning and attention disabilities.

Participants will:

  • learn, share, network, take action and gather valuable resources; and
  • leave with a refreshed sense of sisterhood, empowerment and community.

Accommodations are provided upon request. All of these training sessions are free! Learn more about each session below, and then register for one or more sessions!
