    Part 1: Noon to 1:30 pm (faculty, staff and students)

    This interactive workshop will help you strengthen your skills in order to create a more inclusive JHU community for disabled people. By analyzing examples from language, media and design, we will problematize the dominant narrative on disability and identify prevalent stereotypes that contribute to ableist policy, practice and attitudes. Borrowing from disability studies, we will explore the models used to frame disability. We will also challenge the idea that disability is a personal tragedy or problem, and show how it is a phenomenon created by the design of our environments with far-reaching political, social and economic implications. Part 1 of the workshop will be recorded with access provided to the Hopkins community.

     

    Please register in advance for Part 1 of this program. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

     

    Part 2: 2 pm to 4 pm (limited to faculty and staff; Part 1 is required to participate in Part 2)

    This session will delve deeper into unconscious bias against disabled people. We’ll also discuss Universal Design and lessons learned from the pandemic. In small groups, we will end by identifying practical strategies to create more inclusive and welcoming spaces, processes and experiences for all.   

     

    Please register in advance for Part 2 of this program.
