Proseed event wrap-up: “Passion for Inclusion” with k. Max Simpson – Apr 20th 2023

Last week we had another fascinating Proseed event, and enjoyed the sharing and thoughts from Max Simpson, Founder and CEO at Steps Community, regarding the challenges facing mentally diverse people, and others members of the larger Thai society, who are challenged with disabilities.

We thank Max for their sharing, and invite members of our community who are interested in learning more about how they can support the struggle for inclusivity, to reach out to the Steps Community for information and programs.
