It's not often you get the chance to meet somebody who is truly inspirational; someone who will get you Thinking Outside the Box. Well, here's your chance. Come along to the Logan Hyperdome Library, 66 - 70 Mandew Street, Shailer Park at 10.00am on Saturday, 23 February, 2019 and take this opportunity to meet Kathryn Lyon of Accessibili-t, a not-for-profit organisation working to achieve an authentically inclusive world in which everybody can participate equally and independently.
Entry is FREE but bookings are essential as the room will fill up quickly. Book here to ensure you have a seat for this genuinely uplifting event.
This is a real opportunity to learn new ways of thinking and possibly have your perceptions changed. Kathryn will help you Think Outside the Box and grow your own understanding of how many of the things we expect and take for granted are not accessible to other members of our community. For example, currently public toileting facilities do not meet the basic requirements of many Australians and, as a result, deny a most basic human right of personal dignity for those affected. Kathryn challenges this lack of understanding and displays how she has successfully guided governments and corporations through the simple steps necessary to develop the means of inclusion and accessibility that ensure personal dignity for everyone.
Since she started her mission and even when hospitalised, requiring frequent emergency treatment, Kathryn continued to persist in her quest. In the same year, 2016, Kathryn was named as the'Young Queenslander of the Year'and joined five other finalists for the 'Young People Human Rights Medal of Australia'.
Since then Kathryn has continued to develop into the award-winning global disability advocate, change maker and access warrior she is today. She now has a mission to be the voice for a better understanding of the necessary changes for building inclusivity into our communities.
Since her start in 2016, Kathryn has undertaken motivational talks, public speaking and workshops for community groups and governments. She continually raises significant issues based on her belief that everyone has abilities and strengths that need to be recognised and identified.
You will be amazed by Kathryn and what she has achieved in such a short time.
