Disability Awareness Speakers

We’ve always lived in a diverse world but organizations and businesses are starting to realize that they have the power to change the discourse of disability. We represent several disability awareness speakers who all talk about how to make inclusion and equality a reality in your organization.

Disability awareness speakers offer strategies and advice to leaders on how to welcome, talk about and understand disabilities. Disabilities can be physical, intellectual or cognitive, and studies show that around 15% of the world’s population suffer from a disability. Therefore, as leaders, managers and coworkers we must know how to understand life as a disabled.
