About Event

Join us on Monday, March 11 from 12:00pm-1:30pm for a panel discussion on Disability Awareness & Justice.

The panel will feature graduate and undergraduate students, as well as a disability advisor to speak about disability justice and advocacy. Panelists will share their own lived experiences about living with a disability and provide key takeaways to audience members about creating more awareness and amplifying disability justice. The panel discussion seeks to examine or interrogate the ways in which ableism (and other systems of oppression) hinder or affect people living with disability(ies).

The goal of the panel is to create more visibility and awareness on the topic of disability. Additionally, the panelists aim to provide concrete examples of how to make Stanford a more accessible and equitable place for individuals with disabilities.

Panelists featured:

Sylvia Colt-Lacayo | Undergraduate student in the Film and Media Studies | School of Social Humanities & Sciences

Rosie Ries | Ph.D. Candidate in Geophysics | Doerr School of Sustainability

Roselyn Thomas | Disability Adviser | Office of Accessible Education

Catherine Weibel | Ph.D. Student in Applied Physics | School of Humanities and Sciences

Lunch will be provided. If you would like to join virtually, the link through Zoom can be found here.

If you need a disability-related accommodation, please contact José Rubio-Zepeda via email no later than Tuesday, March 6 at
