    “The employment provisions of the ADA are at their core about inclusion — helping to understand and remedy the many ways we make spaces, or workplaces, inclusive of people with disabilities. My mother would often ask me to explain what studying geography had to do with disability. Fair question. Geography to her was about maps, rivers, countries, and mountains — Jeopardy questions! My response would always be, discrimination and exclusion are inherently spatial processes.” – Kimberly Cordingly, JAN Lead Consultant
