Office for Institutional Equity Fall 2023 Workshop Series

This session will cover the foundational concepts of ableism. Ableism is the structural oppression of groups and individuals based on ability and/or disability. This session will discuss how ableism exists as a system and manifests in the workplace and our communities. Types of diversity in ability such as neurodiversity and physical differences will be discussed. This session will also touch on disability justice. Participants will engage activities to deepen their knowledge about ableism and approaches to disrupting structural barriers that persist to exclude groups based on different abilities.

Facilitated by Elizabeth Jones, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
