Please join me in extending a much-deserved congratulation to our very own Meenu Sikand. Meenu has recently been an Inductee for the Disability Hall of Fame. Her contributions to the advocacy in the disability sector is truly an inspiration for those that get to know her.
Enjoy a short message posted in respect of the award winner:
An award-winning disability rights advocate, transformative leader, and champion of accessibility and inclusivity, Meenu has made an incredible impact professionally and as a volunteer. Currently serving as the first-ever executive lead for equity, diversity and inclusion at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Meenu is also the founder of “Accessibility for All,” a non-profit organization that works to identify, address and meet the needs of marginalized communities. She is a sought-after speaker who has travelled the world providing education on disability-related topics ranging from mental health and cultural competencies to parenting and race. A devoted volunteer, Meenu has served as a board director for Punjabi Community Health Services, the Center for Independent Living and ARCH, among others.
I could not have said it better myself what a short message and a true highlight of Meenu’s work so far.
Now time for a few words of gratitude and encouragement from the award winner herself:
I wish to thank the Hall of fame award committee for choosing me as an Inductee. My advocacy journey would be incomplete without those that have brought specific areas of improvement and growth within my community to my attention. I thank each one of you for such important work to be done in our community. You all have a share in my success. – Meenu
I wish Meenu many congratulations on her recent achievement and wish her all the very best for her future endeavors.
With Kind Regards,
