Committee: Status of Disabled People in the Profession

Committee Charge

The committee is charged with assessing and reporting on the status of disabled people in the profession as well as on those who are or might sometime be impacted by disability. Among its responsibilities shall be to identify unfair, discriminatory, or inaccessible practices affecting disabled people in their professional work and to appraise the board and the members of the association of ways in which they may be rectified; to work with disabled philosophers concerning means of overcoming discrimination and disability-specific obstacles that they may encounter; to examine barriers faced by philosophers who care for family members with disabilities; to study the potentially disabling effects of aging on philosophers; and to make reports and recommendations to the board concerning ways in which full and meaningful equality of opportunity can be provided to all individuals who seek to study, teach, or conduct research in philosophy.

In addition, the president of the Society for Philosophy and Disability (SPD) will serve on the committee ex officio.

Committee Reports

First report will be posted after the 2020–2021 year.
