How to be a Good Ally

How to be a Good Ally Workshop

Disability confidence starts with awareness. As disability education and advocacy experts, we have designed this new workshop to support businesses and organisations to be a good ally to the 1 in 5 Australians with disability or who are d/Deaf.

Covering topics from unconscious bias and ableism to the top issues facing disabled artists, this insightful workshop will improve your understanding of disability and provide a comfortable space to ask questions.

Learn about:

  • Open communication – be confident in knowing the appropriate language and etiquette
  • Understanding that one disabled person’s experience is one disabled person’s experience
  • Learn which questions are OK to ask (and which ones aren’t really OK)
  • Facilitating autonomy
  • How to be proactive
  • Ensuring inclusion – “Nothing about us without us”

Attendees will also be provided with useful resources to help their teams also be good allies.
