Learn with a Leading Expert

Deborah Dagit is a compelling and vocal advocate for people with disabilities.

Known for her pragmatism and her subject matter expertise with regards to all dimensions of diversity, Deb has 22 years of experience as a diversity practitioner, and has worked as a top executive in both the Information Technology and Health care fields informing both HR and business practices and strategies. As the only Chief Diversity Officer with a visible disability, she has often found herself in the unenviable position of being the sole voice in the room to advocate for societal and workforce inclusion for people with disabilities.
