In·clu·city: creating an inclusive city and building inclusivity

 

What does an inclusive community look like, and what will it take to get there? Inclucity is a movement that we are initiating to improve inclusivity throughout the Puget Sound. We aim to spark conversation, reflection, and action through a variety of events throughout the year to engage community members in discussion about social issues and rights surrounding disability and inclusion. 

 

Inclucity Event 

The first Inclucity event began in 2016; transitioning from a traditional, sit-down luncheon to an interactive, hands-on event. At Inclucity, Puget Sound organizations present technological and community advancements that their organization is making to support people with disabilities. We hope to bring people together to learn about these technological advancements and innovative solutions, and engage in dynamic conversations around how we must all contribute and be inspired to take action.

We aspire that through this event, we- as a community- can accelerate the movement of creating a truly inclusive Northwest.

Inclucity 2017 Event

Inclucity is a first of its kind event in the Puget Sound area. We strive to bring together every type of community member who holds a stake in building a more inclusive community – including service providers, businesses, parents, research groups, and advocates. Inclucity is non-ask event – providing a relaxing and open opportunity to talk candidly about inclusion.

The 2017 event will include networking time for attendees to visit vendor booths as well as a live program featuring a variety of speakers on the topics of cutting edge communication technology, supported employment initiatives, disability rights, and more! Whether you’re new to the inclusion
movement or have a deep dedication, Inclucity is the perfect opportunity to connect with others and drive this mission forward.
