For the past 3 years, the Accessibility Commission has been hosting events in October in conjunction with National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year, we welcome speaker Vilissa Thompson who will present “Pay Me What I’m Worth: Valuing the Work of Disabled People” at the Watt Family Innovation Center on October 23 from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. We look forward to Thompson sharing her insights and experience as a licensed master social worker; founder and CEO of Ramp Your Voice!; and accomplished disability rights consultant, writer and activist. This event is open to faculty, staff, students, and the community, and will feature a Question and Answer session at the end.
Additional information for this event is provided below, and a recording of the session will be made available.
