Biography

Disability Connect is the perfect platform for which to make powerful connections, share best practices and formulate strategies aligning with the theme of Communities in Common.

Disability Connect is a one-day intensive event focused on the intersectionality between the Disability, LGBTQ and Veteran constituencies within a company, specifically as it relates to their Business Resource Groups. This highly collaborative day is for BRG Leaders, Members, Executive Sponsors, Allies and Diversity Professionals. Year after year, Disability Connect attendees say they leave this one-of-a-kind event challenged in terms of their perspective, educated in ways they have not been before and inspired to take their BRG’s further than they ever thought imaginable.

In addition to learning from one another, you will be sure to be inspired by our keynote presenter.
