Recap: #DiversabilityLaunch in NYC
It's hard to believe that Diversability's re-launch--or #DiversabilityLaunch--in New York City was almost 2 months ago. I wanted to share a few highlights from social media.
It was such an honor to have Commissioner Victor Calise from the NYC Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities join us.
A special thank you one more time to our speakers, sponsors, and volunteers.
