Episode 8 | Speaking up | Bronya Metherall & Tara Moss

Cerebral Conversations

We can all be agents for change, but we need to find our voices first and the courage to speak up. In this episode, Bronya and Tara speak up about creating communities that empower those living with disability. How can we challenge governments to enact change that creates truly inclusive societies? What does advocacy really mean, and when does it really work? How can we help people find their voice and see the power in their personal storytelling? And how on earth can we get people to care about a cause that doesn’t personally affect them? Bronya Metherall is General Manager of Global Influence & Social Impact at Cerebral Palsy Alliance. She leads CPA’s global advocacy campaigns, including World CP Day and Window of Opportunity, our campaign to introduce universal early childhood screening for cerebral palsy. Through advocacy, government relations, policy reform, innovation and capacity-building, she’s helping us affect social and economic change to create more inclusive communities.

Episode 6 | Let's get visible | Hannah Diviney & Tara Moss on Inclusion

Cerebral Conversations

Australia is recognised as one of the most inclusive nations in the world, but really, is it? Disability advocate Hannah Diviney joins Tara Moss to dig into the details of what it’s like to live with a disability and tackle stereotypes, mental health issues, and barriers to work and education. How do Hannah and Tara overcome the stigmas around disability and women? What does living with a disability mean for our sense of identity? And really, why isn’t there a disabled Disney princess? (Hannah’s working on that.) Hannah Diviney is a writer, founder of the Krazy Kosci Klimb, supporter of CPActive (a new initiative campaigning for change) and Co-Editor in Chief and Creative Lead at Missing Perspectives. For Hannah, visibility is so important. As she says, “visibility of disabled people in relationships, or disabled people being parents: that sort of visibility is very helpful for me in combating against my insecurities around whether I can have that, whether that's in the future for me..”  Check out Hannah's work at Missing Perspectives, sign her Disabled Disney Princess petition, and follow her on Twitter @hannah_diviney and Instagram @hannahthewildflower Tara Moss is an author, former model and ambulatory wheelchair user living withComplex Regional Pain Syndrome.
