Disability Equality and Intersectionality
DEI (Disability Equality and Intersectionality) helps you to remove barriers disabled people face – whether they are friends, colleagues or customers. And to respect every part of a persons identity.
Client-centred and bespoke, DEI uses a range of delivery styles in order to maximise the learning experience for all participants.
DEI sessions are delivered by myself – a professional trainer with lived experience of disability and queerness.
They are friendly and non-judgemental, using material that is imaginative and fun. These sessions may include: lively group activities, interesting debate, thought-provoking video, and visual and written resources.
This workshop will include a basic understanding of the social model of disability, intersectionality, disabling barriers, disability etiquette and quip (queer crip) culure.
One of the following topics can also be covered depending upon your interests: stereotypes, historical attitudes, or equality legislation.
Basic One Day Session
This session will include a detailed understanding of the social model of disability, intersectionality, disability etiquette, quip (queer crip) culture and disabling barriers.
It can also include a number of topics which can further the participants understanding of inclusion. These will very much depend upon your needs, but can include: stereotypes, historical attitudes and equality legislation. Participants will be assessed by formative assignments.
Comprehensive Two Day Course
This course is a more in-depth exploration of the basic one day session, and will include both formative and summative assignments.
It can also include a number of topics to develop a full understanding of inclusion and best practice. Again, these will very much depend upon your requirements, but can include: stereotypes, historical attitudes, activism, eugenics, queer theory and disability related legislation.
