It is time to reframe our thinking and best practices in disability services to better serve the diverse populations coming our way in higher education. Discrimination and exclusion are not resolved by focusing on a single issue or influence. This webinar will explore the useful framework of “Intersectionality” as it relates to equitable opportunities, legal compliance, accessibility, barrier elimination, and resources for serving BIPOC disabled students.
