Join our President & CEO, Jill Houghton, at this event at the AAAED 46TH Virtual National Conference. Disability:IN will be receiving the Edward M. Kennedy Community Service Award. Award Ceremony takes place Oct.8.
The year 2020 marks the 46th Anniversary of the American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity (AAAED), formerly the American Association for Affirmative Action. It is also the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The theme of the AAAED National Conference this year is “Turning Obstacles into Opportunities.” In view of the challenges the world faces, with an unprecedented pandemic and health crisis, the AAAED conference theme could not be more appropriate. Like other associations, AAAED was faced with having to cancel its annual conference or convert it to a virtual event. We have chosen to turn this obstacle to an online opportunity. Moreover, we are learning to embrace the technology of today and promote our mission of access, equity and diversity in a virtual environment. In October, we will host a virtual conference, including some of the keynoters who were scheduled to speak in Washington, DC, and will continue through December with the conference workshops converted to Virtual Sessions.
