Real Inclusion is Proactive

I just want to take a minute to offer some thought about inclusion here at the Creating Change conference.

While it is the national conference on LGBT equality, there is an extensive commitment to recognizing and celebrating the intersecting diversity.

The opening plenary opened with an explanation about translation. This year, in addition to providing interpreters for ASL, The Task Force has invested in the technology necessary to provide interpretation for Spanish.

In addition, the conference co-chairs Russell Roybal and Susan Hyde took some time to make sure we all knew how to be considerate of people with physical disabilities, such as making sure hallways are accessible and that people don’t interact with folks’ guide dogs.

It makes me incredibly proud to be a part of a conference that is so committed to making sure everyone can participate. True inclusion doesn’t discriminate.

    I’m glad to know accommodations were made for people with disabilities.  All too often their needs aren’t considered when events are planned.
