16th Annual Ever Widening Circle on Thursday, October 9, 2014

Please join us on Thursday, October 9, 2014, at our annual Disability Policy Summit and Ever Widening Circle, our premier gala celebrating WID’s work and disability culture at the universally designed and award-winning Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley, California.

Our Ever Widening Circle event, immediately following our annual Disability Policy Summit, will include a cocktail reception, a short program and an awards ceremony.  This year’s event will feature performers with and without disabilities that have been selected for their creativity, overall accessibility and their ability to engage an audience interested in supporting disability arts and culture.

Policy Summit 2014 will focus on technology policy and feature a roundtable discussion geared toward corporate technology officers interested in improving accessibility of their online services and systems as well as a discussion of seniors and persons with disabilities who use access technology to enhance their ability to live independently in the community of their choosing.

An internationally recognized public policy center founded in 1983 by leaders of the Independent Living Movement, WID's program work focuses on critical policy issues that directly affect people’s ability to live full and independent lives.  WID believes that access to technology is a key to accessing employment, independence and high quality healthcare for seniors and persons with disabilities.

The success and visibility of Ever Widening Circle is the result of the strong collaborative ties between WID and its partners and sponsors. WID invites individuals and companies to join with us in our commitment to advancing disability rights and support our policy summit and gala event by becoming a sponsor at one of the levels listed on the sponsorship form at the bottom of this page.

We appreciate your support toward our mission to eliminate barriers to full social integration and increase employment, economic security and health care for persons with disabilities worldwide.  Please feel free to call with any questions and thank you for considering our request for sponsorship of Ever Widening Circle.
