    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Roughly one out of every five people in the United States has a disability, making it the largest minority group in the country. But even with the sheer numbers, the population is regularly overlooked and rarely talked about. Over the past few decades, the country’s public school systems have made strides in terms of inclusion, but once they become adults, Americans with disabilities are still regularly denied a place at the table. Learn how you can be part of the solution by creating more inclusive neighborhoods, workforces and communities.
