Inclusion/Diversity/Accessibility Consultation

Marisa is passionate about supporting and developing projects, events, facilities, and programs so that they are more inclusive of people of all abilities.  Making something more accessible and inclusive broadens audience and increases the reach, but oftentimes you don't know what to do.  She is available to step in as a guide.
