Five Good Ideas for disrupting ableism in the workplace

How can we embed Accessibility in our EDI (Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion) work so our anti-oppression efforts foster belonging in our diverse workforce and reflect the values of intersectionality and disability justice? How do we do this work without creating increased stress and confusion among staff and board members? While the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is our benchmark for change, it won’t need to be fully implemented until 2025. We can start now by shifting our organizational culture to ensure sustainable change. Start by recognizing the places we get “stuck.” Organizations and non-profit agencies can and should apply access and inclusion principles to programming, board initiatives, and the general organizational culture. This will foster a commitment that goes beyond compliance and the checking off of boxes. To help us get “unstuck,” Fran Odette and Sree Nallamothu present five good ideas from their experience at the Toronto Neighbourhood Centres. Discover how you and your non-profit organizations can respond to the need for an accessible workplace with integrity and accountability.
