Hanover's Online Event: Hiding in plain sight: Aren’t we all disabled?
Hanover had the pleasure of being joined by Alexandra Haggard, a founding member of the Diversity Project who is currently leading its work stream on improving inclusion for people with disabilities.
Alexandra set out her Diversity and Inclusion journey, leading up to her discovery of her own disability – and the discomfort that accompanied it. Alexandra re-framed participants understanding of what it is to be disabled, and why we all are – or will at some point be - disabled.
Alexandra concluded with how individuals and firms can collaborate to welcome the incredible skills that are currently being stifled or entirely excluded from both the workforce and daily life because of our bias to “ableism.”
