Reframing the Conversation: ‘How is disability included in diversity?’

Panelists discuss how to better include people with disabilities in equity, diversity and inclusion work.

Across the globe, there has been increasing acknowledgment of injustices such as health inequities, racism and the vital changes needed to address these disparities. One such group often left out of the equity, diversity and inclusion focus is people with disabilities. In this panel discussion, panelists shared advice and insight into their intersectional identities and experiences to help us learn how to develop a culture in which individuals are empowered to speak out and ultimately add to efforts that move our campus forward toward greater accessibility for all.
