Enabling Artists and Entrepreneurs with Disabilities

Against a white background, at the top of the graphic there are five overlapping blue, yellow, pink, and purple abstract circular shapes. Within each circle is a drawn depiction of a scene of a person at work. A person with a prosthetic leg kneels with her camera to take a picture. A person using a wheelchair reviews a blueprint. Another person is wearing an apron and holding a flower arrangement. One person is on stage and raising a microphone in the air. And another person in an apron holds an apple and is standing next to a cash register. Underneath the overlapping images, in bright complimentary colors, bold text reads, “Enabling Artists and Entrepreneurs with Disabilities.” At the bottom is the Women Enabled International logo.]

COVID-19, sometimes called the coronavirus, has impacted the health and safety of communities around the world. We at Women Enabled International believe it is having a particular impact on women, girls, non-binary, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities, including on their economic livelihoods.

This month, we’re highlighting the work of women, non-binary, and gender non-conforming persons with disabilities who are economically impacted by COVID-19 on our social media platforms.

Small business owners, artists, speakers, musicians, entrepreneurs, authors, web-designers, freelancers, and others are encouraged to submit their contact and business information through the linked interest form.

If you identify as a woman, non-binary, or gender non-conforming persons with disabilities whose livelihood is affected by COVID-19 and want your work to be featured on our social media platforms, please fill out the linked interest form. A member of our staff will reach out if we plan to highlight your work.

Please share among your networks.
