Beyond Inclusion – Building Self-Advocate Leaders

Self-advocates can be leaders! It requires knowledge, skills, and courage. Disability organizations such as TASH are the place to begin. Until self-advocates assume leadership roles, they will never imprint their dreams on a world where inclusion means all – in ALL capacities. Let’s strive for a high standard of inclusive leadership. Join our panel of self-advocates as we present and discuss ways to do this.

  1. 1. Identify traditional and non-traditional roles.

  3. 3. Achieve posts on disability boards, councils,and committees.
  4. 4. Reach and maintain leadership positions that include solving and dealing with problems faced by all leaders.
  5. 5. Establish systems of support and strong networks of professional contacts and friends.
