It is a responsibility of all Queen’s community members to critically engage, address, and respond to ableism. This module is not exhaustive and does not cover the full scope on ableism. However, this module will introduce some key concepts of ableism to deepen self-reflection and ongoing critical thinking within our community. Learning more about ableism is helpful for self-advocacy as well as supporting colleagues, peers, customers, clients, friends, and family with disabilities here at Queen’s University.
This module covers a number of topics including:
- Describing ableism;
- Disability models;
- Disability intersectionality;
- Ableism and systemic violence and
- Reflection activities.
