AHEAD Live! Disability IS Diversity

AHEAD understands disability as a part of diversity and understands that one’s disability experience intersects with countless other aspects of identity. As an Association, we recognize that our work in disability inclusion must remain firmly rooted in equity and uplifting the activism of other communities similarly marginalized. For more information, please see AHEAD’s website and AHEAD's Commitment to Diversity statement to Membership from July 2016.

As higher education professionals, we are well-positioned to work towards greater inclusion of students from all backgrounds and identities on our campuses, both within and outside of our disability offices. But we also know that the work can contain many obstacles- resources, resistance from administration and/or legislation, and sometimes not knowing where to start.

This AHEAD Live! is a chance for you to connect with others who are asking these same questions, and brainstorm ideas together. Join us on Zoom for this drop-in discussion, where we will have knowledgeable disability leaders with extensive experience in leading equity initiatives both within and outside of disability services on hand to participate and help guide conversations.

This will not be recorded, and you can come in and stay for however long you’d like.
