Civic Engagement

We define civic engagement broadly to realize our vision that people with disabilities will lead with power and influence, in spaces like:

  • Nonprofit leadership on boards and associate boards
  • Public service through professional positions and participation on boards, committees, and taskforces at all levels of government
  • Professional leadership positions in all sectors – public, private, and nonprofit
  • Leadership within organizations to advance disability inclusion
  • Serving as a speaker or panelist
  • And more!
