Join a Community Hub

WDV facilitates five leadership networks (Hubs) for women and non-binary people with disabilities in local regions. Our Hub members get together regularly and support each other in their leadership, advocacy and empowerment goals.

We aim to make our Hubs friendly and respectful spaces for members to connect, share their experiences and gain information on their rights.

Hub members might also get involved in local matters that impact the lives of women and non-binary people with disabilities.

There is no cost to join a Hub.
