About the event
The AIM Disability Equity Book Club’s next selection is, “Demystifying Disability: What to Know, What to Say, and How to Be an Ally” by Emily Ladau. Demystifying Disability is an approachable guide to being a thoughtful, informed ally to disabled people, with actionable steps for what to say and do (and what not to do) and how you can help make the world a more accessible, inclusive place.
Each book club meeting is facilitated by experienced disability equity professionals who will facilitate a discussion of each chapter. The goal of the book club is to empower health professions education stakeholders (e.g., diversity teams, DRP's, staff, faculty, students) to become thoughtful, informed allies to disabled people and how they can help make the world a more accessible, inclusive place.
RSVPs are required for each meeting.
Meetings will be held virtually via Zoom and captioning will be provided for each meeting. We invite you to request for accommodations and kindly request that you request accommodations two weeks in advance of each meeting. If you would like to request an ASL interpreter, you can do that when you RSVP to the book club meetings. For other requests or accessibility inquiries please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
