The first Deafblind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, Haben believes disability is an opportunity for innovation, and she teaches organizations the importance of choosing inclusion.
Named a White House Champion of Change by President Obama, Haben has also received the Helen Keller Achievement Award as well as a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and she has delivered a TIME100 Talk."
April 14 2023 - CUNY Neurodiversity Conference 2023
Discussions of neurodivergent talent often focus on narrow definitions of STEM-related skills at the expense of exploring the vast creative expression at the heart of the neurodiversity movement. For the fifth CUNY Neurodiversity Conference, we want to spotlight neurodivergent artists. We can all learn from neurodivergent creativity, including how to support people in ways that recognize the full diversity of the spectrum.
