Disability Inclusive Culture with Fatma AlJassim and Sara Minkara


WHEN April 11, 2021
5:30-6:30 PM WHERE Zoom WHO Office of Inclusion and Equity Open to the Public

The Office of Inclusion and Equity is proud to host Sara Minkara and Fatma AlJassim for a conversation on developing a more inclusive society and transforming social and cultural stigmas against disability globally. This discussion will explore what it means to be “authentically inclusive” and how this can be fostered on individual, institutional, and global levels. The discussion will be followed by an interactive session, "Discovery in the Dark," which is designed to facilitate deep self-reflection on the ways we perceive ourselves and others and how much of that is based on visual cues and assumptions. This session will help create awareness of how perceptions create external realities and will build on that to identify concrete ways to bring more inclusive practices into workplaces, communities, schools, and beyond.
