If you are first-generation, a person of color, LGBTQ, low income, a person with a disability, or a mix of those identities, you have a valuable contribution to make. Mobility International USA, Abroad with Disabilities and Diversity Abroad are 3 organizations actively working to promote an international exchange field where all identities and perspectives are included. In episode 1, Justin talks with Trixie Cordoba, Associate Director of Diversity Abroad and Juanita Lillie, President of Abroad with Disabilities about the uniquely distinct work that we do to make international exchange better for everyone.
Over the last decade, the international exchange field has experienced a renaissance in disability access. In season 4 of Ripple Effects, we took a closer look at some of those changes, and the reasons why people with disabilities should seriously think about studying or volunteering abroad. Join our host, Justin Harford, as he gives an overview of season 4.
