Between COVID-19, racial tensions, and rising work expectations, disability and mental health awareness with organizational leaders is more important than ever. This session addresses the relationship between race and disability and establishes a common language around intersectionality. You will walk away with insights into cultivating programs, practices, and building an organizational culture that is grounded in racial justice, disability justice, and inclusion.
Expected learning outcomes include:
- Gain awareness on the interconnected nature of disability and race.
- Identify what limits trust and belonging on a team.
- Understand the importance of intersectional efforts across your organization.
