Careful—Your DisC Is Showing: From Discomfort to Inclusion and Equity for People with Disabilities

You'd want to know if your disC is showing, right? Yes, you're not the only person who exposes their disComfort with being around people with disabilities. As Black/African Americans, we've felt the sting of other people's discomfort around us, and the concept is the same for people with disabilities.

As we shed our preconceived notions and rethink the messages we've been told about disability, we can support diversity; have better interactions with our colleagues, friends, and customers; promote better physical and digital environments for everyone; and improve and have impactful engagements that can literally change the world.

Learn how to get comfortable and create inclusion and equity for our one billion neighbors from around the world.
