Sara Minkara brought to UN Headquarters a powerful experience underscoring that inclusion of people with disabilities brings value to all. ‘My blindness has become my strength,’ she said, while challenging all to reassess assumptions as precursor for meaningful inclusion.

We received a great response from the Employee Resource Group members who took part in the workshop. We were able to create relationships that will help us break silos in the future. I recommend [Sara]’s services to all organizations that want to create an inclusive workplace culture.
