Don’t Miss the July DDM Seminar: Don't Dis My Ability

DEIA DDM 2023 Diverse Silhouettes

The Deputy Director for Management (DDM) Seminar Series offers the NIH community engaging presentations that provide meaningful insights into leadership and management concepts, challenges, and solutions.

The upcoming DDM session, “Don't Dis My Ability,” is one not to be missed. The presenter, Albert J. Rizzi, received his B.A. from Manhattanville College and has dual M.S. degrees from St. John’s University in education—one in early childhood and the other in administration and supervision. In 2006, Mr. Rizzi unexpectedly and completely lost his eyesight. He became an activist and advocate for the blind and visually impaired, providing education, building awareness, and working to achieve the development and dissemination of assistive technologies.

We hope you will join the last DDM seminar of FY23!  For details and to register, visit the DDM Seminar Series website. As a reminder, if you missed any of our outstanding speakers, you can find their recorded videocast through our past seminars page.
