The Disability Story: Diversity in Media

The Disability Story: Diversity in Media
Recording: The Disability Story: Diversity in Media, Mar 12, 2019

When we talk about changing the Disability narrative, we mean transforming the lack of diversity in the disability stories that are told and consumed by media and pop culture.
Through a rich and powerful conversation centered on women with disabilities, we will explore how is it that the disability community can have better and more impactful representation by countering stereotypes, and reflect on the work ahead that remains to be done to make it happen. We will explore intersectionality in forms of disabilities, gender identity, sexual preferences, cultural context, race and others.
We will also shine a light on the importance of disabled people as authentic storytellers to foster spaces of truth, power, decision-making and sense of community for creating social impact.
