Race and Disability within Equity & Inclusion Training and Learning

Disability justice is supposed to center the needs and lived experiences of people who are disabled, are part of oppressed groups, and give voice to those often left out of coalition-building efforts. If philanthropy is to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, then it can't treat poverty, race, health, and disability as separate issues. This session will engage participants on the importance of the intersections of race and disability within equity, diversity, and inclusion training and skill building while navigating multiple points of oppression. Through activities and open discussion, participants will get the opportunity to dive deep into how ableism shows up within this field and the various ways to challenge it. Participants will learn the importance of using and implementing intersectional social justice frameworks in philanthropy in order to achieve true social change internally and externally.
