Presented by the Maine Association of Nonprofits in partnership with Nonprofit New York

Community engagement is a powerful tool - one that works best when the whole community is involved, not just part of it. While there is a growing understanding of the importance of equitable and inclusive community engagement, people with disabilities often still face barriers. Join Celeste Frye, founder & CEO of Public Works Partners, LLC, for a discussion on how nonprofits can work to remove these barriers and facilitate participation by all populations. Discover strategies to help ensure your organization is listening to the entire community, earning their trust, and eliminating ableism in its many forms.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify engagement practices that create barriers to participation for people with disabilities.
  • To develop engagement strategies that consider the needs of impacted populations.
  • To build a more equitable and inclusive community engagement practice.

This workshop will be presented by Celeste Frye, Founder & CEO of Public Works Partners
