2021 Seaman Lecture on Disability
Haben Girma
Disability & Innovation:
The Universal Benefits of Inclusive Design
Tuesday, February 9, 2021 12:00 – 1:00 PM (ET)
Disabled people are one of the largest under represented groups, numbering over 1.3 billion worldwide. Organizations that choose to invest in disability inclusion gain access to a larger audience, provide a better experience for both disabled and nondisabled members, and facilitate growth and innovation. Join us for an engaging presentation on Haben’s journey as a disability rights advocate and how we can make Brown more inclusive.
The first Deafblind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, Haben Girma is a human rights lawyer advancing disability justice. President Obama named her a White House Champion of Change. She received the Helen Keller Achievement Award, a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and TIME100 Talks. President Bill Clinton, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and Chancellor Angela Merkel have all honored Haben. Haben believes disability is an opportunity for innovation, and she teaches organizations the importance of choosing inclusion. The New York Times, Oprah Magazine, and TODAY Show featured her memoir, Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law.
