As of July 5, 2022, Tania Diaz will become Chief Executive Officer for Disability Rights Nebraska. She began her career as a law clerk on work-study through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. After earning her law degree, she joined the organization as a staff attorney, a position that evolved into her role as Legal Services Director. These roles have provided her with extensive knowledge and experience working with state and federal partners and stakeholders to protect and advocate for the legal and human rights of people with disabilities.
Tania believes it is imperative that the organization continue its engagement with values-based programs and principles; the philosophy provides the foundation for Disability Rights Nebraska as a progressive organization on the leading edge of disability rights. She is deeply committed to ensuring that the programs and services we provide uphold and complement the agency’s mission, vision, and purpose.
