Discovering the Value of Including Persons with Disabilities with Your Overall Inclusion Efforts

Discovering the Value of Including Persons with Disabilities with Your Overall Inclusion Efforts Interview with Daniel HodgesCreating access is usually a much simpler process than we imaging subtle changes make a world of difference. Access and inclusion are catalysts for innovation that benefit everyone. No viewing people with disabilities as people to serve, but also including them in nonprofit leadership.Questions to be addressed in this interview: What is a disability and how many people have it? How do access and inclusion benefit everyone? How difficult is it be inclusive and to create access? What’s the difference between access and accommodation? Daniel Hodges has spent his entire life learning to thrive in a body that some consider to be deeply flawed. As someone who was born blind, and with a connective tissue disorder, I am well-acquainted with the low expectations encountered by those with disabilities. These experiences have ignited a fire in me to help create a world in which everyone is afforded the opportunity to reach their potential without the barriers that hold so many of us back. In 2018, I entered the University of Baltimore School of Law, with aspirations of practicing at the intersection of healthcare and civil rights law. My involvement in Peaces of Me is an outgrowth of these efforts. Our collective passion for advocacy and furtherance of equity and inclusion runs deep. I am blessed and honored to be part of this amazing team.More at https://peacesofme.org Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
