Best-selling author and motivational speaker Michael Hingson will present, “Moving from Diversity to Inclusion” from 10 – 11:30 a.m. Oct. 23 in the Mendenhall Student Center Great Rooms 2 & 3.

Hingson survived the 9-11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center by travelling down 76 flights of stairs with his seeing-eye dog.

Hingson uses stories, humor and lessons from his life growing up as a blind person. He has worked successfully in professional sales, management and leadership positions.  He will share how a few simple adjustments can open opportunities for persons with disabilities or individuals who are outside the normal scope of diversity discussions.

The event is arranged through the Student Affairs Continuing Career Development series.
