Fall Summit: Access, Justice, Visibility

December 12 @ 8:15 am - 3:30 pm

Morning Keynote: Disability & Innovation: The Universal Benefits of Inclusion

Presenter: Haben Girma

People with disabilities represent the largest minority group, numbering one billion worldwide. Reaching a group of this scale creates value for everyone. Organizations that prioritize accessibility benefit by gaining access to a much larger user base, improving the experience for both disabled and non-disabled users, and facilitating further innovation.

Afternoon Keynote: Funds of Knowledge: Tapping into the Cultural Capital of Latino Students and Families

Presenter: Dr. Rosa Perez-Isiah

The cultural and linguistic experiences that many of our students bring to school are often perceived to be deficits that require correction when in fact they are strengths and sources of knowledge. Lets learn to prioritize how to tap into the role this cultural capital can play in the academic identity and success of Latino students
