Aimee Elber, MA (she/her), WCDA Eastern Region Chapter President and Regional Transition Consultant with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, will be presenting at the Washington Workforce Association Fall Conference, 2022 WWA Workforce: Stronger Together on November 10 in Seattle, WA.
Her presentation, “Combating Ableism: Simple ways to improve accessibility and inclusivity in the workplace” is a 75-minute workshop that will focus on Ableism within the context of the workplace. The conversation will highlight both visible and invisible disabilities, with discussion on simple ways to minimize Ableism at work, building awareness about Ableism and offering best practices for supporting staff and colleagues with disabilities. Participants will engage in interactive discussions - learning about the Medical vs. Social/Human Rights models of disability, the various forms of Ableism and how they may apply in the workplace, Ableist stereotypes, and guidelines for reducing Ableism.
Be sure to say hi to Aimee if you attend the conference!
