2021 was filled with moments where leaders with disabilities made us move closer to a more equitable and inclusive society. Disability Lead’s Network has positively disrupted systems to build power, influence, and change for people with disabilities.
To celebrate these achievements Emily Voorde, Assistant Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Administration’s liaison to Disabled Americans, joined us for a fireside chat followed by a brief networking opportunity.
Emily Voorde currently serves as Assistant Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Administration’s liaison to Disabled Americans. A former classroom teacher and K-12 education policymaker, much of her work in the White House is ensuring that space is carved out for Disabled voices – in “disability-specific” conversations, of course, but more importantly in spaces across policy issues.
