Hello! I’m Alycia Anderson and I’m so excited to share my new podcast with you! I am a disabled motivational speaker advocating for diversity, equity and inclusion. My disability hasn’t stopped me from becoming an international Tedx motivational speaker, entrepreneur, CEO, wife and so much more. I hope to help you push through life’s adversities and reach your dreams with my podcast, “Pushing Forward with Alycia Anderson”! Each week, we’ll explore trending topics around DEI+disability, digital accessibility, workplace inclusion, disabling ableism. We’ll talk about timely stories that are happening right now like airlines and disability discrimination, and celebrating Disability Pride Month in July, plus stories of resilience, and success against all odds. I hope you’ll give it a listen.
