In recognition of the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Damon Brooks & Associates (DB&A) is thrilled to host an inaugural speaker showcase for conference organizers to find their next keynote presenter. The “EDI Virtual Speaker Showcase” will be a meaningful virtual gathering with a purpose.

The event's unique format will feature a one-hour, facilitated discussion that brings together 5 professional speakers who all live with a disability. Each speaker will present a condensed version of their remarkable talk, with each segment lasting approximately 8 minutes. This dynamic approach ensures that attendees are exposed to diverse perspectives based on the personal experiences of speakers who live with a disability, fostering an engaging and enlightening dialogue around crucial EDI (equity, diversity/disability, and inclusion) topics.
