Join us as we discuss disability inclusion, increased accessibility, and deconstructing ableism in the nonprofit fundraising community. Twenty-two percent of Americans currently have a disability, and even those who don't currently identify as disabled may develop a disabling condition at any point in their lives. Topics of discussion will include identifying and dismantling ableism, creating inclusive and accessible programming and policies, and tools for evaluating accessibility within organizations.
Jessie Calero, our presenter, is a young nonprofit professional who has 12 years experience working with individuals with disabilities; nine of which are in the nonprofit sector. Now serving as Development Director at Mandy's Farm and as a disabled individual herself, Jessie actively works in the community to improve programming, accessibility and resources for individuals with disabilities.
