Excerpts from the Preface
Fitting In acts as a “diving board” to help readers dive into the idea of creating with disability in mind. In the era of inclusion riders, Times Up, and Body Positivity, this is imperative in order to educate and empower the reader with information that will allow them to seamlessly navigate “diversity initiatives”, and most importantly, create disruptive equitable innovation.
Fitting In propels you into a conversation about fashion, design, photography, and media images explored through the lens of disability. If the articles make you feel humbled, overwhelmed, and as if you’re at the beginning of a long journey and have a lot to learn, then I’ve accomplished my goal.
