Workshop #1: Best Practices for Disability Inclusion: A 101 Conversation Around Disability

This is a two-part workshop. You can register for the whole program or for the workshop session that interests you the most.

Disability is often used to reference an individual’s physical and/or mental health conditions, and their relation to hospitals, rehabilitation services, and other medical services. This interactive workshop will help you understand disability prevalence and move beyond symptoms to focusing on inclusion. You will leave with guidance around reasonable accommodations and cultivating a culture that is inclusive of people with disabilities.  

Learning outcomes include:  

  • Define disability and explore its significance to overarching equity efforts 
  • Become aware of and begin to address any potential internal or organizational biases 
  • Identify actions and steps in addressing inequity as it relates to disability
