What is Diversability?
Diversability is a movement to raise disability awareness and reshape conceptions of ability.
The launch event was held at Joynature in NYC.
The launch event, “Diversability: An Evening Celebrating Diversity & Disability”, featured a panel of esteemed individuals and a silent auction. Proceeds from the event went to benefit the Disability Equality Index, the disability inclusion benchmarking tool for businesses.
The panel was moderated by Liz Taub, Director of Business Relations & Strategic Partnerships at USBLN.
