About this Event:

In 30 years, the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) has taken us from inaccessible to only somewhat accessible. As the most significant legislation since the Civil Rights Act and the first act of its kind globally, it has acknowledged the rights of People with Disabilities and compelled important structural changes.

However, upwards of 66% of People with Disabilities remain unemployed or underemployed, many living below the poverty line. Workplaces are frequently ill-equipped and unprepared to hire, support and retain these individuals, and significant stereotypes, biases and stigma persist.

The impact of COVID-19 may have changed some of these attitudes and accelerated the preparedness of organizations to invest in accommodations and work virtually. Experiencing firsthand the challenges of care and isolation has also changed understanding for some of the difficulties faced by People with Disabilities, including those with mental disabilities. This may make this 30th anniversary of the ADA propel the long-overdue completion of the culture shift that started generations ago. 

Join us for a thought-provoking, at times humorous, multicultural panel discussion to celebrate and critically examine the ADA. Most importantly, learn about the steps you and your organization can take to make urgently needed progress.
