SPEAKER: Dr. Donna R. Walton
Dr. Walton is a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and the founder of the Divas With Disabilities Project™, which has made an unprecedented impact in disability and women of color communities as a hub for thoughtful discussion on issues, self-love, and showing up, unapologetically in all forms of media. She presently is producing a film documentary “Divas with Disabilities” that explores the lived experiences of African American women who live with physical disability in the United States.
Dr. Walton spent over 20 years’ in diversity and disability employment services where she distinguished herself as a leader, advocate, and proponent of equal rights for persons with disabilities, in both public and private sectors, including The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), The United States Department of Labor Office of Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management (OASAM), The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the George Washington University Center for Rehabilitation Counseling Research and Education (CRCRE).
