Networks for Training and Development, Inc.
dedicated to promoting inclusive communities through quality training, consultation, and practice...
Networks began with a focus on training and technical assistance around disability-related issues. The organization has continued to grow in many ways, including increased staff with diverse experiences and areas of expertise, development and operation of small demonstration projects incorporating many of the founding values and beliefs of Networks, and increased topical information available through general training and consultation.

Message from Networks’ Executive Director
Our world continues to change all around us. For the past few years, we have been navigating the landscape of life with the COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest locally and globally, and the increased need for ongoing dialogue and work centered on issues of our humanity.
Networks' mission begins with "promoting inclusive communities," which means that there should be space for ALL of us - regardless of perceived ability, race, gender, sexual orientation, income, education, etc... This also means that where space does not currently exist for certain groups, it is our mission to make room.
We stand for social justice, always have and always will. #blacklivesmatter
