Global Accessibility Awareness Day Watch Party

This is a past event.

Join the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion while we watch "Disabling Ableism" (hosted by Monsido) as part of Global Accessibility Awareness Day.  Pizza and discussion included! 

Everyone has different skill levels and abilities, and it is by celebrating and cherishing our unique differences that we can make our society more inclusive. With 1 in 5 people in the world living with a disability, we need to understand how we can go beyond traditional biases in order to embrace diversity, equity and inclusion whether it be in the physical or digital world. 

Join guest speaker, Alycia Anderson, on Global Accessibility Awareness Day to learn more about what ableism is, why you need to understand it, and how you can make a difference in your organization. Find out how Alycia’s professional journey has helped communities and companies understand the benefits inherent to building a diverse, inclusive and accessible workplace and society. 

Thursday, May 19 12:45 - 2 pm

Please register in advance. 

Thursday, May 19 at 12:45 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
