The Winnebago County Diversity Affairs Commission (DAC) invites you to join us on Thursday, August 4th from 3:00-4:30pm!
The DAC Speaker Series is an opportunity for you to meet diverse community members who are living and working in our community and to increase your understanding of how we as individuals and a community can do better in building inclusive environments. The DAC invites various speakers to share their perspectives and experiences. We respect that everyone has their own opinions. Our goal is supportive learning opportunities. Speakers tell their stories, share historical perspectives and provide the audience with ideas for doing their own learning and work.
Join us to learn about SOAR Fox Cities including our history, mission, programs, and services. Learn how we empower people with differing abilities! We will then continue with General DisABILITY Awareness! These presentations are designed to refute stereotypes related to disabilities, help others understand and accept individuals with varying abilities, and help the general public to focus on a person’s abilities rather than disabilities. Information is shared about many different disabilities, including but not limited to Developmental and Intellectual, Autism, and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Attendees will also learn about respectful language and disability etiquette.
