2018 Forum for Disability Allyship: Advocating for Abilities
June 29, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm
Join us for the Forum for Disability Allyship to find out more about disability experience in the workplace and how to show up as an ally.
As allyship conversations around gender and race continue to increase, other identities have yet to receive due attention from potential allies. Twenty percent of the population has a disability and yet representation of disability in the workplace is limited at best. Join the 2018 Breaking Glass Forum for Disability Allyship to find out more about disability experience in the workplace and how to show up as an ally at your company.
This will be a safe space for everyone to engage and learn from one another without judgment. Attendance is limited to 100, so register soon!
All proceeds to benefit Abilities United, a nonprofit advancing advocacy, independence and inclusion of people with developmental disabilities.
Featured speakers include:
Cynthia Owyoung, Founder of Breaking Glass Forums
Jessie Wusthoff, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, Clover Health
Noël Kreidler, HR & ADA Consultant, Kreidler Solutions
