Tea Time with the Jackson Center: World Institute on Disability
September 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Our 2021 programming theme is The Work Left to Do, and within that theme we explore a different focus each month. In the first Tea of the month, we look at a topic from a broader perspective to understand the universal and legal challenges. For the second Tea of the month, we speak with those doing the work to educate and/or advance change so we can understand the continuing challenges and how we can contribute to change in our own communities. For the month of September, our programming is focused on disability equity and disability justice.
Our September 23, 2021 guests are Marcie Roth, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, and Dawn Skaggs, Emergency, Disaster, and Climate Resilience Specialist, at the World Institute on Disability. WID’s global mission is to continually advance the rights and opportunities of over one billion people with disabilities. Since WID’s original call to action in 1983, it has committed to advancing promising disability inclusion policy and practices globally. Today, its call to action remains rooted in rights and indelibly embedded in its strategic engagements with leaders, allies and visionaries who share their commitment to innovative solutions. Together they are disrupting, transforming, and optimizing the future of disability inclusion.
