Join us as we discuss disability inclusion and accessibility in the nonprofit community. Nineteen 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 accessibility in direct services, volunteer programs and fundraising, as well as best practices for organizations that wish to identify and remove barriers to disabled community members.
Jessie Calero, our presenter, is a young nonprofit professional who has ten years’ experience working with individuals with disabilities; seven 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.
