We Are The Most Creative People In The World
Show Notes

In today’s episode, find out how a global pandemic became the spotlight we needed on accessibility. When the pandemic hit in March 2020, the world went digital. After years of everyone saying they couldn’t offer services online, businesses quickly pivoted to do what previously said couldn’t be done: offer their services online. The world going digital was a great equalizer in access and still, there are ableist gaps. If there was any time to be more accessible, it is now. Let’s face it, life is harder than usual, we don’t need a single barrier in the way of the desired outcome and success for an employee, a client, or a fellow human. The truth bombs can’t stop, won’t stop as Christine and Clary (@sparkclarity) explore what invisible illnesses and disabilities really look like. Plus, if you’re an employer or business owner, learn how providing accommodations can be totally free and increase productivity 100%.

Clary Chambers, who goes by she/her pronouns, works to make the invisible visible. As the founder and CEO of Spark Clarity, Clary works with businesses as a consultant to make their physical, digital and cultural spaces more inclusive for everyone.
