When we take time to have conversations at eye level – to really consider and understand another perspective – that’s when real change can happen. We facilitate these critical conversations to connect communities and drive positive social change for people living with disabilities.
What We Do
When we were in the beginning stages of our nonprofit, Sarah facilitated conversations that helped us identify our goals and values. She was also instrumental in drafting client - and donor - facing communications. Most importantly, she helped us determine our organizational purpose with a clear roadmap for future growth. We would not have thought as ambitiously about our reach, nor would we have such a focused path into the future. Shield Maidens Wheelchair Basketball would not have the impact it does now without the help of Sarah and Eye Level Communications, LLC, and we are immensely grateful!

Sarah walked our organization, Operation Surf, through an entire organizational realignment. She supported our leadership, provided excellent consultation, and helped us navigate the stressful growth of redefining our Mission, Vision, and Values. Her collective experience and energetic personality made the whole process enjoyable and effective. We walked away with a strong first step on our path of change for the better. She helped us rebuild our organization's foundation in the best way possible and we continue to build off of it today. Highly recommend Eye Level Communications, LLC!
—Amanda Curaza, Executive Director
Sarah and Eye Level have been amazing to collaborate with over the past few years. Her Disability 101 training received such positive feedback that we decided to bring her back as a keynote speaker, to discuss Effective Disability Communications and Understanding Inclusion in Community Recreation. For each occasion, she was able to customize the content to meet our staff training needs. She ALWAYS brings a wealth of knowledge to our employees, while keeping them engaged in the conversation. I definitely recommend inviting Sarah to speak at your next event or training session. I know we're looking forward to working with her again in the future!

We were truly blessed to come across Sarah Kirwan and Eye Level Communications. She is a versatile individual who quickly grasped the essential needs of our branding and developed a new mission, value, and vision positioning that was unique to our organization while keeping our company’s identity intact. Her work ethic is second to none and through her efforts she led our teams to successfully create a complete market-researched outline and new business development roll out package for a new division that is targeted to have a significant impact on our organizational initiative growth for years to come. What I appreciate most is her continued drive and motivation to excel. I could go on and on about Sarah, but you will see once you get involved with her that she’s the real deal!

Incluse This! Podcast
A MOVEMENT FOR DISABILITY EQUITY
Incluse This! is not just a podcast – it’s a movement. We want to change conversations, perceptions, and policies, but most importantly, we want to change mindsets and how we think about disability in America. It’s a space created for the critical and sometimes uncomfortable conversations we must have, to progress the movement for disability equity forward. We amplify disabled voices, tackle the intersectionality that naturally exists for people living with disabilities, connect everyone through shared experiences, and work alongside disability allies to unify the disability community.
