Diversity & Intersectionality Training Through a Disability Lens

The AACs' Diversity & Intersectionality Training Through a Disability Lens is a three half-day training designed for service providers and general audiences. This training is for any individual or agency looking to expand or gain knowledge on the topics of diversity, intersectionality, cultural education and individuals with disabilities. The training is founded in intersectionality and diversity best practices, with considerations for the disability community, trauma and cultural background.

Curriculum topic areas include: cultural competency vs. cultural humility, privilege and power, microaggressions, trailblazers in the field, best practices, intersectionality and oppression – all through the disability lens. Training material delivery is through lecture, heavy interaction/participation, large and small group discussion, videos and case scenarios.

Upcoming Dates and Times

These trainings are currently free, thanks to Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funds from the Ohio Attorney General’s office, and are held online from 9 a.m. to noon each day.
