The Power of Allyship: Through the Lens of Audism

SEPTEMBER 26, 2019, Burnaby B.C.

ABOUT THIS EVENT

 

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 accessibility.

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. 

Moderator

  • Jamie Finley, FSA Member, BCIT Applied Research
