More About This Virtual Event
A motivating Keynote that’s fun, promotes culture, inclusivity, and is completely online!
The topic is creating a more inclusive mindset in relation to disability.
This session is very interactive, with questions posed to the group and small discussion activities. The session will include a lot of personal stories and experiences from our host Alexis’ life – humourous and impactful.
Alexis Hillyard (she/her) is a queer and disabled YouTube Creator, self-taught vegan chef, entrepreneur, and a parent of an energetic toddler.
Born without her left hand, Alexis uses her stump as a kitchen tool - from spatula to juicer - on her channel, Stump Kitchen, a YouTube series that celebrates body diversity, gluten free vegan cooking, and the amazing, unique ways we move through the world.
In 2016 & 2018, Stump Kitchen won Best Food Blog in VUE Magazine’s Best of Edmonton, Canada. In 2017, Alexis was named the first Canadian Ambassador to the Lucky Fin Project, an organization dedicated to limb difference awareness, education, and celebration.
Alexis was also awarded the Meritorious Service Medal from the Governor General of Canada for her Stump Kitchen work, which is one of the highest honors that Canada can bestow on its citizens.
Stump Kitchen has received considerable local and national media attention including TV, Radio, Digital, and Print coverage. The show has been featured on CTV, Global, Food 52, CBC Radio, The Edmonton Journal, and various lifestyle and food blogs.
Alexis loves to challenge society’s preconceived notions around disability by ‘disarming’ her audience with wit, charm, and delicious recipes!
Bring Alexis and her inspiring stories to your next meeting!
Alexis is the creator of Stump Kitchen, her YouTube show that centers disability in the kitchen, gluten free vegan cooking, and the amazing, unique ways we move through the world.
In addition to cooking, Alexis loves to play ukulele, have fun with her bionic arm ‘Billie’, and adores being mom to an energetic toddler!
