INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES 2018



Judy Winter Images.

A valuable post in honor of today's International Day of Persons with Disabilities. 

One billion people worldwide. World's largest minority group. Too often ignored, mocked, maligned, undervalued, and left out of the diversity discussion.

That's finally changing, evidenced in part, by this timely CNN.com piece, "Join the world in in recognizing the strengths and struggles of people with disabilities."

Long overdue. Much work remains.

Because I've been traveling a lot since spring and because I tend to update my professional Facebook page more regularly than this blog, my posts here have been a little behind. 

My apologies if you've been waiting patiently for new stuff here.

Wait over. 

Here we go!

The BBC is among those broadcasters supporting an initiative to increase the percentage of people with disabilities working on screen or behind the scenes in television.

Let's hope it's just the beginning of such industry efforts worldwide.

Efforts long overdue.
