Women’s Disability Leadership, Inclusion & Advocacy Series

Women’s Disability Leadership, Inclusion & Advocacy Series

You and your guests are invited to a terrific speaker series! Fourteen empowering female speakers with disability advocacy experience and tremendous wisdom, energy and positivity will be presenting at these four remaining sessions. This series was made possible thanks to the generous support of the New York Women’s Foundation (NYWF) and Coca-Cola Foundation.

Participants will:
learn, share, network, take action and gather valuable resources; and
leave with a refreshed sense of sisterhood, empowerment and community.
Accommodations are provided upon request. All of these training sessions are free! Learn more about each session below, and then register for one or more sessions!
