Rethinking Diversity, Reintroducing Disability
A Panel Discussion
Disability is too often left out of the academic and political discourse concerning equity, diversity and inclusion. Yet disability is a core aspect of these values and intersects with all other marginalized groups for which equity, diversity, and inclusion are critical. Join us for a lively panel discussion with esteemed disability scholars and activists from the Bay Area to discuss disability history, identity, rights, and movements.
