Presented by the Disability & Philanthropy Forum

People with disabilities are significantly underrepresented in management roles and professional occupations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Philanthropy has an essential role to play in shifting this paradigm.

In this webinar, which is free and open to the public, you'll learn from two dynamic speakers, Azeema Akram and Rasheera Dopson, in conversation with Disability & Philanthropy Forum Executive Director Emily Harris, about what's possible when philanthropic leadership centers disability and disabled people. When disability representation is more than an aspiration, there is potential to create true inclusivity and accessibility in our strategies, goals, grantmaking, and design.

During this learning session, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from leaders within the disability community. We’ll cover topics including:  

  • Actions philanthropy can take to elevate disabled staff members to leadership roles.
  • Why and how to ensure there is disability representation on boards.
  • How leaders that self-disclose their disability can lead the shift toward more inclusive workplace cultures?
