Opening Doors For The Disabled Community With KR Liu

Join Change Catalyst Founder & CEO Melinda Briana Epler with KR Liu, Head of Brand Accessibility at Google in conversation about how we can make the working environment more inclusive for people with disabilities.

We talked about KR Liu’s incredible journey to becoming an advocate, based on her own story of struggling in the workplace with dealing with hearing loss.

We learned:

  • The importance of speaking up and making the disabled community part of every department in a company.
  • The dramatic statistic with regards to the representation of the disabled community in the workplace and even more for the Black disabled community
  • The simple actions you can put in place to help to make this community more visible. 1 in 4 people experience disability at some points including permanent, temporary or situational.
