The Next Dimension of Equity: Including People with Disabilities as Part of Nonprofit Diversity Work

Disability is a social construct defining what is "normal" and what is not. For organizations already building an understanding of race, gender, and other social constructs and their consequences, this webinar offers a framework to help leaders consider disability in equity planning and identify ways their nonprofit can better include people with disabilities on its staff and board, and among its target population. The presenters, who are nonprofit professionals and people with disabilities, will share their personal and professional experiences, as well as resources and actions that help nonprofits create a culture that presumes competency of people with disabilities for authentic inclusion and accessibility.


This webinar is part of Walking the Talk: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in North Carolina Nonprofits, the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits’ initiative to address racial and generational leadership gaps in the nonprofit sector and the policies, practices, and culture that exacerbate them.
