Unlearning Ableism: Skill Up for Accessibility!
***Now totally virtual on zoom!***
Join via Zoom at https://go.uic.edu/UnlearningAbleismZoom
Access info: All workshops will be held on Zoom. We’ll have CART (live captions) and e-copies of all materials. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any other requests!
Join the UIC Disability Cultural Center for a series of workshops! We are proud to be part of a university with a strong social justice focus, one that recognizes disability as a valuable part of diversity. We believe disabled people have a lot to contribute to university life, and that it takes all of us to make student life at UIC inclusive and accessible.
There are many great accessibility checklists out there, but sometimes it can be hard to know where to start! In other cases, we might be unsure of exactly how to do some of the things on the list.
Skill Up for Accessibility is a series of workshops that tackle smaller sets of skills that support accessibility and inclusion. We’ll take time to look at examples, talk about nuances, and do some practice in each session.
Please join us, bring your experience & your questions, and skill up to make cultural change at UIC!
