DISABILITY LANGUAGE & COMMUNICATION
“Watch Your Mouth: What NOT to Say to a Disabled Person (And the Things You Can)”
Disability, language, and communication are incredibly important to the disability community. We convey narratives and reveal aspects of how we view disability by how our words are framed. With LaVant Consulting’s “Watch Your Mouth” training, we will dive into the importance of the words we use, theoretical models of disability behind our communication, with practical/relatable application and audience participation via introducing collective access principles online. Gear up for an engaging 90 minutes that will elevate your collaboration within the vast disability community, and take deeper steps to “speak disability with confidence.”

DISABILITY INCLUSIVE WORKPLACE CULTURE
“Beyond the Ramp: Collective Access & True Markings of An Accessible Workplace”
In this interactive training, we’ll explore accessibility, the underpinnings of inacessible spaces,and fostering community. Then, we will introduce the disability justice principle of collective access and how this can be applied to your workplace and community-building spaces. We will do this by providing guidance on concrete ways you can make your workplace culture more inclusive of people with disabilities, from personal attitudes to professional policies. Starting with simple tips for humanizing your employees and finishing with office-wide structural change, this workshop will give you the tools you need to create a disability inclusive work culture.

Website Accessibility Overlays Are Selling Brands a Lie
Accessibility is not magic. There is no wand you can wave to make your building, event, program, or initiative instantly accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities. Companies marketing website accessibility overlay software, such as AccessiBe, AudioEye, and UserWay, are bad news by selling little more than lies and empty promises of true website accessibility.
