Being Superman: 4 Concepts That Help Leaders Understand (Dis)Ability.
Monday 4:15 – 5:15 PM
More than 25% of the population has a disability in some form. Disability related issues are the #1 EEOC complaint. With this in mind, we have to keep working to ensure that 1) our organization creates an environment that is accepting of persons with (dis)abilities and 2) we as leaders have a working knowledge of what (dis)ability is and how to celebrate it. During this presentation I infuse my life story of overcoming challenges both on and off the football field with practical knowledge relating to ability and inclusion.
