Erin Brown
Paratriathlete and DEAI Advocate

Erin Brown paratriathlete and DEAI advocate is a cancer survivor, amputee, advocate for accessibility, Godmother of Royal Caribbean’s ship Odyssey of the Seas, motivational speaker, mother and most of all an inspiration to all.

Brown was a collegiate track and field athlete with her whole life ahead of her; with all the dreams any young lady would wish for herself.  She was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, osteosarcoma which changed the course of her life.  Brown made the decision to amputate her leg above the knee, but she said, “you may take my leg, but you will not take my life.”

With this positive attitude she has become an advocate for accessibility and inclusion where she highlights the need for society to become more aware of non-able persons and create a more inclusive society – for everyone.  Her message is truly about living our lives authentically.

Erin’s work with her company Erin Brown Conects is all about helping companies connect with staff to ensure each employee can reach their highest potential by promoting inclusion and accessibility for disable personnel.

Her message is one of inspiration and positivity; showing up as your authentic-self and sharing all of your strengths, creates a better world for us all.

Erin Brown takes the podium for the christening of Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas ship. The ceremonial takes place to launch a new vessel where a bottle of Champagne is broken on the bow of the ship, using a carefully rigged length of line so that when it is released by the godmother, it swings across and smashes against the ship.
