Please join us for breakfast and a presentation from Paul Artale on Being Superman: 4 Concepts that Help Leaders Understand (Dis)Ability.
More than 25% of the population has a disability in some form. With this in mind, we have to keep working to ensure that 1) our organization creates an environment that is accepting of persons with (dis)abilities and 2) we as leaders have a working knowledge of what (dis)ability is and how to celebrate it. During this presentation I infuse my life story of overcoming challenges both on and off the football field with practical knowledge relating to ability and inclusion
- Learn the key tenants of Disability Identity Theory
- Understand and identify microagressions and how to combat them
- Define and understand intersectionality both broadly and on a personal level
- Understand (dis)ability as both a social and medical construct
