Disability is Diversity

Karen Andrews

Join Ms. Karen Andrews, UAA's Director of Disability Support Services, on March 22, 2017 for a discussion on diversity. For Ms. Andrews, disability

is diversity. It is the one minority all are eligible for. "Regardless of race, economic status, or cultural background, any one of us can be there in a moment," she says.


A major role she plays for UAA is ensuring the school and its services are in compliance with the American Disabilty Act. But the letter of the law isn’t enough; she works hard on the spirit of the law. 


Ms. Andrews will guide fundraising professional on how to create an inclusive environment where folks of all abilities, backgrounds, genders, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, ethnicities and countries of origin, religion, feel like they too can make a difference -- and help development professionals  understand how a more inclusive fundraising team (whether it is hiring a person with a disability or using volunteers who may have disabilities or focusing on how to solicit a person with a disability, or who speaks a different language) benefits your organization.
