Do you want to learn how to welcome, respect and include the 1-in-5 people who live with a physical, sensory, cognitive, mental health or other disability? Do you aim to advance equity and create safe spaces where people of all backgrounds and abilities can bring their talents and authentic selves? You are invited to host an online training with one or more of the 11 dynamic women with diverse disabilities from New York City’s five boroughs, through RespectAbility’s National Disability Speakers Bureau: Women’s Division. These talented ambassadors for equity will deliver upbeat, authentic, and accessible Disability 101 trainings virtually and in-person within NYC’s public and private sectors and beyond.
This program, which expands our Disability, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DDEI) pipeline among NYC’s women with disabilities is made possible with support by the New York Women’s Foundation and the Coca Cola Foundation. Piloted in NYC, these speakers can work online with groups anywhere. Whether you are looking for diversity, equity, inclusion and access training for a nonprofit, faith-based group, corporation or school, we have the right speaker(s) for you!
