Celebrating our diverse disability lived experiences through the power of community

Diversability is an award-winning movement to rebrand disability through the power of community.

Thought Leadership - Speaking Engagements

We believe in the power of fostering conversations by sharing our story to audiences. Our founder, Tiffany, and members of our team are available for speaking engagements (individually, together, or on a diversity/disability panel) at colleges, conferences, nonprofits, and other events, sharing their experiences with disability, the challenges they've overcome, and Diversability's role in rebranding disability. 

We're fortunate for every opportunity that allows us to connect with others, and hopefully spark thoughtful and meaningful conversation. Whether you're booking speakers for an event, or simply want your group to experience what Diversability is all about - we're grateful to be considered.

What a gift to have Jerron on our Vital Voices: Bouncing Back panel. Jerron’s warmth + genuine personality shined through his entire keynote + everyone felt so connected. He shared his nuggets of wisdom so openly. Post-event, we heard that the employees were super inspired + energized by the way Jerron lives his life with such passion. He refuses to let his Cerebral Palsy stop him from achieving anything.

It was such a pleasure to have Tiffany join my company’s panel on Diversity in Technology. She offered a unique, thoughtful point of view that inspired further conversation among panelists and guests alike. I look forward to the opportunity to work with her and Diversability in the future.
— Rachel P., Sr. Director, Marketing
Diversability was the perfect partner for our October 2017 panel discussion, Work Matters for All: Stories of Disability and Professional Success. We were seeking panelists whose disabilities and professional accomplishments would resonate with the experiences and career aspirations of our unique student body. After discussing our goals, time frame, and budget, Tiffany connected us with two fantastic local associates who did just that.

Working with Diversability was also a great way for our Disability Services program to get plugged into conversations and events in our area and to grow our overall awareness of national issues and discussions. Everyone at Diversability was a pleasure to work with and the overall experience was enriching. Many thanks to Diversability for your guidance and help with this project!
