Inclusion at Work: Charting Your Course and Applying Inclusion Principles
Presenters: Tanisha Clarke, MPH and Daphnee Guillaume, MPH, CHES
How do you define inclusion? Inclusion is not a ‘one size fits all’ process. In fact, it takes time, planning, and intentionality. Disability inclusion is understanding the relationship between the way people function and their involvement in society and making sure everyone has the same opportunities to participate in every aspect of life to the best of their abilities and needs. The topic of inclusion requires addressing policies and practices designed to identify and remove potential barriers. This interactive training is intended to be personalized to the needs of participants. The training will encourage participants to explore key issues regarding disability culture, inclusion practices, and sustainability.
