KCDEN Community Building Conversation
Third Wednesday of every month
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Participants can anticipate an informal conversation focused on the shared experience of disability.
The KCDEN was established in late 2021 by and for employees who self-identify as having a disability. Members work collectively to advance the following goals:
Create opportunities for peer-to-peer support and resource sharing
Ensure the inclusion of persons with disabilities at work and in the community
Address ableism and removing barriers in the workplace
Address intersectionality with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and other marginalized identities
Inform policy and other decisions that impact persons with disabilities in King County.
The purpose of the King County Disability Equity Network is to center and support those employees who self-identify as a person with a disability. Employees will not be asked to disclose any information about one’s disability.
Members engage in monthly virtual gatherings and stay connected through KCDEN’s private Teams site.
