Join us as we ask ourselves the question “Do we need Equality before Equity?”
As strong women on our good days we have an obligation to give back to our peers, community, allies and of course….each other. We say good days because we hope this is a starting point that all of us together will have more good days and be stronger in our collective power. The reality is we have more in common with each other then what sets us apart.
The ILMI IWD Celebration event will have some incredible guest speakers and performers which spans the length and breadth of disability culture, fashion, science, business, music and written word.
