Presented as part of the 2021 Joining Hands Virtual Symposium, a panel of international exchange alumni brought the topic of disability to the forefront of their conversation, sharing how people with disabilities also hold other identities that may impact their exchange.
For Black History Month 2021, the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange invited a panel of black, disabled international exchange alumni to share their international exchange experiences and offer considerations to educators when planning for access and inclusion to students from dually marginalized identities. Their stories impact future access and inclusion planning for international exchange practitioners and empower more black, disabled students to take their rightful place in international exchange.
A panel of international exchange alumni with disabilities and other diverse identities reflect on their experiences abroad, touching on the dynamics and interplay of disability, nationality, race, ethnicity, gender, cultural heritage, and more. Presented as part of the 2020 Joining Hands Virtual Symposium.
