The University Committee for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, in partnership with President Christopher Callahan, presents this series of dialogues designed to offer students an enriched co-curricular experience via participating in dialogues with influential citizen leaders from across the country. These dialogues will address the social, cultural and structural inequities in our society and help educate, engage and empower individuals to become transformative leaders in the fight for social justice.
Join us for a discussion about Invisible Disabilities - Erasing the Stigma with Jillian Hall '13 Twin Rivers Unified School District, Maureen Elias, Associate Legislative Director of Paralyzed Veterans of America, and Rachel Miyazaki '13 Rooted in Rights
Did you know that while some disabilities are externally visible to others, there are some disabilities that are not obvious, often called “invisible” or “hidden” disabilities? People with invisible disabilities often face specific challenges and tasks in their workplaces, communities, and when traveling. The reality of an individual with a disability can be difficult for others to recognize or acknowledge. Today's session of the diversity, equity and inclusion dialogue will help you learn about a wide spectrum of invisible disabilities so that you can better understand how you can help erase the societal stigma.
