Members-Only Workshop – The Disability Inclusion Pledge: What is your North Star?

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2024
Time: 1:00 – 3:00 PM ET

Registration for this workshop has closed.

Members of the Disability & Philanthropy Forum have all committed to a big-picture Disability Inclusion Pledge, but like any internal or external campaign, signing on is just the first step. It raises more questions than it answers: What does progress look like when complete success seems far off? How do we set benchmarks? Who, exactly, are we trying to reach, and what do we want them to do? How do we achieve buy-in from our teams when there are so many competing priorities?

In this members-only workshop, we’ll discuss creating north star vision plans for disability inclusion, approaching it like a campaign, for each of our organizations.

Join Meier Galblum Haigh, founding Executive Director of The Disability Culture Lab, for an exciting training on how to create north star vision plans for your campaign or organization. Meier has worked with dozens of social justice leaders, organizations, and movements of north star planning, and now they will bring that expertise to you! You’ll take away:

The Disability Culture Lab is fiscally sponsored by Proteus Fund.

This workshop is capped at 60 attendees to allow for the interactive, hands-on format.

This workshop is only available to members of the Disability & Philanthropy Forum. If you work in philanthropy but are not a Forum member, we invite you to apply to become one!
