IMPACT-Ability Webinar Series
The ingenuity and creativity of people with disabilities and their families is a force that continues to change the world.
To celebrate the “impact-ability” of people in the disability movement, Plan Institute sponsored a seven part webinar series based on the book IMPACT: Six Patterns to Spread Your Social Innovation by Al Etmanski, co-presented with Tamarack Institute. Each session was based on a pattern from the book. Al and Vickie hosted the series and were joined by seven experienced and inspirational change-makers between October 2016 and February 2017.
