The Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame was established by the National Disability Mentoring Coalition (NDMC) to honor those individuals who are making a significant difference in the lives of youth and adults with disabilities through mentoring and to raise awareness about the importance of mentoring for individuals with disabilities.
Eve Hill was selected for this honor based on her commitment to mentoring and the impact of her mentoring efforts.
Eve, one of the nation’s leading disability rights attorneys, joined Brown, Goldstein & Levy (BGL) in 2017. Her wide-ranging experience complements the firm’s dedication to high-impact disability rights cases and its advocacy on behalf of individuals with disabilities and their families. Eve is co-leader of Inclusivity, BGL’s Strategic Consulting Group.
Prior to joining the firm, Eve served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, where she was responsible for oversight of the Division’s disability rights enforcement, educational civil rights enforcement, Title VI interagency coordination, and the American Indian Working Group.
Eve’s experience in many facets of organizations and government with respect to disability issues allows her to assist disability advocacy groups in enforcing rights to accessibility and employment and in breaking down other barriers.
Eve commented, “Mentoring is being a mountain guide on the trek of a career – pointing out routes, sometimes pushing barriers out of the way, sharing what you’ve learned from prior trips (where the oasis is, where to get the best view), pointing out hazards (cliffs, bears, and falling rocks), helping a person get the right skills in their backpack for the trip, and knowing how to call for a helicopter in a crisis. Sometimes a mentee only needs a point in the direction of the trailhead. Other times you get to go along for the whole trek.”
