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.
