    Incorporating Disability into the DEI Conversation

    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) set the foundation of access for the disability community but it is just a minimum and no law has the power to change society’s mindset; instead, education and understanding do. Join Kyann Flint as she speaks on the importance of incorporating disability into the diversity, equity, and inclusion conversation. Learn not only about the barriers that still exist for the disability community, but specific take-aways to build into your organizations best practices. These practices provide a more welcoming space for your employees and clients with disabilities.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Understand the importance of Disability Awareness and how it impacts your life.

    2. Learn about Ableism and the Roots of Ableism.

    3. Learn the 7 Principles of Universal Design, how to implement this design into your best practices, and how it benefits society as well as the disability community.

    4. Learn how to create an inclusive environment for your employees and glean best practices for in-person interactions.

    5. Learn some tips on how you can make your website more welcoming even with little to no coding experience.
