2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

Gen X & Millennials: Leaders of the Next Generation LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

As long-time leaders of the disability rights movement are aging and exiting the field, a new generation of leaders is rising. In today's workforce, we should expect to shift roles and positions across numerous organizations, rather than maintain the same job for the entirety of a career. We want to hear from ALL perspectives including those who are unrepresented to engage in discussion about our role in this movement. In this breakout session, we will discuss challenges and opportunities as well as the threats we face on the road to full inclusion unique to the current job market and the professionalization of our field. Whether you identify as a new, emerging, or an established leader, we welcome you to join in this discussion with like minded individuals about what we are all working towards and how we will get there.
