Disability Employment Etiquette

December 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Presented by the CSG SEED Initiative

Disability etiquette training may seem like something we, as public servants, shouldn’t need as we seek to help and serve our communities. However, there are many phrases, well-intended actions and even thoughts that are actually received as a prejudice or discrimination towards people with disabilities. During this webinar, we will explore general best practices for how to interact with individuals with disabilities and integrate inclusive practices. Acknowledging individual prejudice or errors in past behavior can be an enlightening but vulnerable process. Breaking participants into small groups to work through several situational examples can provide an outlet for learning, growth and expression. Rejoin entire group briefly at the end of the session to review the examples provided to solidify the training.
