Our Ambassadors are a diverse group of people like: artists, athletes, writers, veterans, lawyers, journalists, advocates, entrepreneurs, students, parents of special needs children and very active members of the community of people with disabilities. They are leaders in their industry who want to make cross-sectional services more accessible. They are effective change-makers who help to drive improvements in the accessibility and quality of services and facilities for disabled people. They lead change and promote best practice from within. Working to promote accessibility, inclusivity, and empowerment of disability identity. The group promotes disability as a valued aspect of diversity through outreach efforts.
While the entertainment industry has made strides toward inclusivity over the last few years, onscreen representation for people with disabilities is still incredibly low. However, there are many industry professionals joining the call for more and better representation of people with disabilities. To mark the unveiling of this year’s list of participants, FOP meets three talented performers who made the cut and are set for big things.
