Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity 2017

October 9, 2017 - October 11, 2017
1775 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, HI 96815

The Pacific Rim International Conference, considered one of the most ‘diverse gatherings’ in the world, encourages and respects voices from “diverse” perspective across numerous areas, including:

  • voices from persons representing all disability areas
  • experiences of family members and supporters across all disability and diversity areas
  • responsiveness to diverse cultural and language differences
  • evidence of researchers and academics studying diversity and disability
  • stories of persons providing powerful lessons; examples of program providers, and
  • action plans to meet human and social needs in a globalized world

In 2017, our areas of inquiry span a holistic and solid foundation for exploring the Conference theme: SustainAbility. We wish to examine the economic, social, cultural, political and environmental aspects of marginalization, and to hasten their demise through action plans favoring diversity in all aspects of life.
