Advancing Disability Inclusion Training

One in four adults in the United States are living with some kind of disability. This diverse community is made up of unique individuals whose knowledge, skills, talents and experiences add important perspective, resourcefulness, and creative energy to our society. Still, people with disabilities are underemployed, overrepresented in health inequities and experience healthcare access barriers. This 90-minute education session will define disability, introduce inclusive practices for language, etiquette and bias management. We will highlight campus resources to help participants begin to think of ways to move from compliance to inclusion within their work environments. Lunch will be provided and a few art pieces from Positive Exposure will be on display.

Positive Exposure’s work and founder was featured at the recent Reframing Inclusion Symposium on campus, May 21st. For 25 years, Positive Exposure has operated as a 501(c)(3), building a more equitable, compassionate world for individuals and communities at risk of stigma and exclusion. We all share the same need: The need to be seen. The need to be heard. The need to belong. Positive Exposure, creates spaces rooted in unity, respect, and inclusion through photography, film, educational programs, and advocacy at their gallery in East Harlem and around the globe.
