Inclusive Philanthropy: How the Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Philanthropy and Nonprofits Can Add to Your Success

Host Organization: PEAK Grantmaking


One in five people live with a physical, sensory, cognitive, learning, mental health, or other disability. Learn from members of RespectAbility’s National Disability Speakers Bureau how to welcome, respect, and include those with disabilities in your communications efforts. Presenters will also share additional resources so you can continue to deepen your knowledge and explore strategies for your foundation.

Please note: This session will be captioned and we’re happy to share information with others who are interested in captioning for your virtual meetings and sessions.
