The Pacific Rim International Conference, considered one of the most ‘diverse gatherings’ in the world, encourages and respects voices from “diverse” perspective across numerous areas, including: voices from persons representing all disability areas; experiences of family members and supporters across all disability and diversity areas; responsiveness to diverse cultural and language differences; evidence of researchers and academics studying diversity and disability; stories of persons providing powerful lessons; examples of program providers, and; action plans to meet human and social needs in a globalized world. In 2017, our areas of inquiry span a holistic and solid foundation for exploring the Conference theme:SustainAbility. We wish to examine the economic, social, cultural, political and environmental aspects of marginalization, and to hasten their demise through action plans favoring diversity in all aspects of life.
