Best Practices for Disability Inclusion: A 101 conversation around disability

Disability is often used to reference an individual’s physical and/or mental health, their relation to hospitals, rehabilitation services, and other medical conditions. This interactive workshop  helps participants understand disability prevalence and to move beyond symptoms to instead  focus on inclusion. Finally, this session will provide guidance around reasonable  accommodations and cultivating a culture that is inclusive of people with disabilities. Expected  learning outcomes include: 

  • Define disability and explore its significance to overarching equity efforts. 
  • Become aware of and begin to address any potential internal or organizational biases.
  • Identify actions steps in addressing inequity as it relates to disability.

This workshop is presented by Keri Grey. Keri’s work centers on exploring the intersections of race, gender, and disability across the  workplace. As a consultant, speaker, and facilitator, she works with companies and  organizations, so they are prepared to leverage intersectionality as an organizational practice.  Keri is also the founder of the National Alliance of Melanin Disabled Advocates, a membership hub for Disabled Black & Brown people who are enhancing the social and economic standards  of their communities. 

Through her various roles, Keri has recruited approximately 4,000 professionals for over 100 organizations and Fortune 500 companies. She has also designed and managed programs for  over 1,000 professionals that has helped participants secure competitive employment, identify  transferable skills, build an influential network, and gain notable opportunities. 

Keri’s work has been featured in Teen Vogue, the New York Times, People Magazine, Time  Magazine, PBS NewsHour, Madamenoire, and the Diet Coke campaign #Unlabeled
