Explore how these efforts strengthen cross-sector partnerships.

Participants in this webinar will:

  • Understand ableism, its impact on individuals, communities, and its implications for social equity, emphasizing opportunities for cross-sector collaborations.
  • Explore how ableism is perpetuated through harmful stereotypes and myths and learn effective ways to challenge and debunk these misconceptions. 
  • Discover how collaboration and allyship can amplify the impact of strategic disruption efforts, fostering broader engagement and awareness across all sectors.
