ETI promotes the achievement of a genuinely inclusive society through the recognition and elimination of stigma against disability, acknowledging and rejecting bias, and elevating respect for individual value.

ETI advances its mission through groundbreaking initiatives that challenge stereotypes about people with disabilities, elevate marginalized voices and viewpoints, and promote a robust and authentic respect for individual value through the organizations.

Our programs shift the collective narrative around disability and marginalization from one of denigration and helplessness to one of empowerment, inclusion, and diversity. Our holistic, grassroots approach focuses on youth, parents, and communities in social, work, family, community, educational, and policy spaces.
