About this event

We are hosting regular meet ups with members and non-members to explore how we can:

  • collaborate and engage with each other
  • learn what is happening around the world in Citizen Network
  • support each other to achieve more

This is an opportunity to become active together - let's get started!


Carol Blessing has over 30 years of experience in the field of disability services, in both direct practice and management capacities. In 2000, she joined the faculty at the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability (YTI) in the ILR School at Cornell University where she leads system’s impact projects aimed at supporting the full inclusion of people with disabilities in typical community life. In 2010, Carol created the landmark Citizen-Centered Leadership Development (CCLD), Community of Practice, a 15-week blended learning intensive course of study offered twice a year.

Carol is passionate about integrating the ideals of citizenship into all aspects of her life’s work. Carol is the author of several publications, including co-editing Conversations on Citizenship and Person-Centered Work (2011) with John O’Brien. She is a seasoned facilitator in all of the prevalent methods for person-centered planning, and co-designed A Framework for Planning©, a person-centered planning approach to supporting people in finding positive pathways into their future.
