I lead organizations through transformation and disruption. With a love for the art and science of communication, I work with leaders across business functions to develop and execute holistic, integrated strategies that impact reputation and culture.I began my professional life as a broadcast news producer and reporter, took a 10 year detour as a corporate litigator and trial attorney, then returned to communications via public relations, organizational communications, and reputation management. Whether it’s crisis, citizenship, culture, or change, my business and communications counsel has helped advance the innovations of prominent non-profit and for-profit organizations across a variety of industries including Microsoft, Washington Mutual Bank, Premera Blue Cross, Banfield Pet Hospitals, Emirates Airline, Starbucks, Target, and Deloitte.

About the talk

Accessibility, diversity, and inclusion leaders know the integral role disability plays in corporate diversity strategy. Yet many companies do not include disability in their diversity and inclusion programs or those who do may not have programs as well-developed as those for racial/ethnic/gender diversity.

• What are the essential steps an organization should take to promote disability as a valued form of diversity to include in the workforce?

• How should companies think strategically about shifting foundational behaviors, attitudes, and policies that create more inclusive workplace cultures for people with disabilities? How do you promote allyship for people with disabilities?

• What is the role of disability inclusion during the time of COVID/remote work? Is the wave of health and wellness programs helping or hurting the efforts to include more forms of disabilities in diversity strategy?
