Speaker/s Name: Rabia Khedr
Rabia Khedr runs diversityworX, a private consultancy company, which helps organizations promote diversity in their work environment. In October 2005, she wrote a white paper investigating, among other things, the impact of ethno-cultural and faith backgrounds on the lives of mothers with disabilities. Through diversityworX, which she runs out of her home, she has consulted for the Canadian Association for Community Living and Providence Health Care. She sits on the board of the Ontario Women’s Health Network and is a member of the City of Mississauga Accessibility Advisory Committee. Rabia is devoted to building inclusive communities. She knows it is a goal she can accomplish in Canada, where she has already had success fighting systemic biases against people with disabilities.
