Members of the Disability Services team are excited to share time dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Throughout our presentation, we will engage and connect with our participants, identify and explore practices that contribute to an inclusive thriving campus community, and ways to provide equitable access. Our goal within this conversation is to address the different dimensions related to disability and acknowledge the diverse community and their intersecting identities. We will introduce and discuss the social model and the way in which it can support members of the disability community. Mason community members bring multiple identities, and it is critical we examine participation barriers from all angles, including, but not limited to gender, ethnicity, religion, and disability or impairment. Participants will hear about impairment and disability as a critical piece of identity and campus/community resources to support in this practice. We will facilitate an interactive dialogue on ways that our campus community can bring disability into the intersecting identities and diversity conversations and trainings happening as Mason.
