National Disability Speakers Bureau: Women and Nonbinary Persons Division

America is becoming steadily more aware of, and eager for, contributions of people with disabilities. As such, speakers featured in our Women and Nonbinary Persons Division of RespectAbility’s growing National Disability Speakers Bureau are available to speak virtually (for the time being) at any or all secular conferences, corporations, and organizations. Our pilot program for RespectAbility’s growing National Disability Speakers Bureau was its Women and Nonbinary Persons Division, training speakers in New York City before and during the onset of the pandemic.

We are grateful to the New York Women’s Foundation and the Coca-Cola Foundation for funding our Women and Nonbinary Persons Division.
