How do we help our communities to become places of inclusion and belonging for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities? What are the postures and practices that matter most? In this presentation, Erik Carter will share a practical framework for reflecting upon and fostering belonging within the communities that matter most to the individuals we serve. Attendees will gain fresh insights into the roles they can play in spurring change within communities that still often struggle to widen their welcome.
