This year Zapproved has focused on action. We started with turning awareness into action, then we workshopped creating our own personal equity roadmaps, and then we learned how to hold ourselves accountable to these actions.
And now we will be joined by the Infinite Flow Dance Company to remind us that taking action is more than words and workshops, it requires you to get moving in the right direction. We want to awaken you to the infinite possibilities of disability inclusion.
1 in 4 Americans, that is 61 million Americans have a disability. Disability is the one minority group that anyone can enter at any given time. Yet, disability is often either forgotten or mentioned last in the conversation of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Led by Marisa Hamamoto, founder of Infinite Flow, a professional dance company that employs disabled and nondisabled dancers with diverse, intersectional identities with a mission to dismantle biases and promote inclusion, and joined by a few Infinite Flow artists, this will be a soul-filling conversation destigmatizing and demystifying disability, and how each of us can be an ally to one another.
We would like to thank TechTown for sponsoring our 2022 Ally Lunch & Learn series. We appreciate your support the last two years and value you as a partner bringing amazing folx to the stage to take the mic!
