Presentation: Towards Equity: Confronting Capitalist Notions of Value, for Radical Inclusion in Employment

Description: In this session, we will explore how disability and difference have been conceptualized over time in workplaces and in society. Yet we remember that discrimination, segregation, stigma, and prejudice toward people with disabilities still persist in U.S. society and around the world. Join us, as together we challenge capitalist thought, counteract pervasive and problematic models of disability, and reimagine the future of workplaces and disability-inclusive employment.
