The Power of Allyship: Through the Lens of Audism

FEBRUARY 22, 2019, B.C.

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Thank you for your interest in this event. It has been delayed until Fall 2019.

We are still holding a lunch & learn on Friday, Feb 22 and hope you can join us. Register now for Two-Spirit Reconciliation: Honouring the Truth; Reconciling for the Future.

——-

Join us for an introduction of and discussion on allyship & audism. This event was co-planned with Diversity Circles Faculty Champion Jamie Finley (BCIT Applied Research) to create an event focused on audism and its impacts, within the larger context of Neurodiversity and the intersecting identities many of us experience.

How do we get a perspective that moves us from just “accommodation” to “Allyship”? This paradigm-shifting workshop calls us to look at the presuppositions we have about systemic barriers while discussing how to become an authentic Ally, through the specific lens of Audism.

This event is open to all BCIT employees and students.
