Introduction to Ableism & Allyship: A Disability Education Workshop

December 13, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A presentation about people with disabilities, taught by people with disabilities.

accessABILITY is hosting a Disability Education Workshop to discuss concepts central to disability justice with the goal of exploring bias and creating stronger allies. This virtual, two-part training welcomes all, both people with disabilities and without, as we explore how to create a more accessible and equitable society for all.

Part I: Introduction to Ableism
1:00 – 2:00
How does historical mistreatment of individuals with disabilities shape our current perspective and bias on disability? And how does our perspective create inaccessibility for the disability community? Join accessABILITY as we explore the impact of our perspectives and new, alternative viewpoints to reframe our understanding of disability.

Part II: Introduction to Allyship
2:00 – 3:00
Join accessABILITY as we learn how to be stronger allies to the disability community by exploring topics such as: the power of language, the impact of our actions, enabling vs empowering, and more. We will navigate real-world scenarios to practice allyship together.
