Description

Join Ben Poynton and Reshma Dhrodia for an engaging training session to discuss accessibility, ableism, and language. This session will provide participants with a foundational knowledge on how communication and language can create barriers to accessibility, and how to address these barriers. Participants will be (re-) introduced to AODA guidelines for accessible communication, language, and terms that may be problematic, invited to consider how language changes over time, and to discuss how this knowledge might change interactions within one’s communities moving forward.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to describe key parts of social and legal (i.e. AODA) contexts relevant to accessible communication; identify problematic terms and understand how ableism informs the use of these term and apply this knowledge to our everyday practices to create an inclusive community without barriers for folks with disabilities.

Participants will be asked to review some materials in advance of the session to prepare. We anticipate this may take one to two hours. Following an introductory presentation, participants will be put into breakout rooms to discuss the articles and answer some preset questions.  The small groups will then re-join the larger group to debrief breakout room discussions.

    This interactive and reflective workshop helps participants identify and name the power structures in which they operate. We will unpack and demystify key concepts often placed under the “EDI” umbrella, while regularly reflecting and dialoguing about how power underpins all of these concepts.
