About the Session

According to the Census Bureau’s 2021 American Community Survey, about 42.5 million Americans (13%) identify as having a disability. Yet, disability continues to be the forgotten identity.

In this CLS discussion, Dr. Jennifer Stollman will discuss the importance of accessibility in all spaces where people work, live, and engage with one another, while dismantling ableism and sharing ways to build inclusivity at work, home, or in one’s surrounding community. Join for a much-needed discussion identifying the impacts of ableism and outline clear-cut strategies for disability advocacy.
