ADEPT Diversity & Intersectionality Training Through a Disability Lens

The AACs’ ADEPT Diversity & Intersectionality Through a Disability Lens training, held over three half-days, is designed for any individual or agency looking to expand or gain knowledge on the topics of diversity, intersectionality, cultural education and individuals with disabilities. The training is founded in intersectionality and diversity best practices with considerations for the disability community, trauma and cultural background.

Curriculum topic areas include: cultural competency vs. cultural humility, privilege and power, microaggressions, trailblazers in the field, best practices, intersectionality and oppression—all through a disability lens. Training material is delivered through lecture, participation, large and small group discussion, videos and case scenarios.

Number of Attendees: 25 maximum


The November 16-18, 2022, session of this training is free, thanks to a VOCA grant from the Ohio Attorney General's office. Cost for all other sessions of this training is $200 per person, billed via PayPal after the participant's application is approved.


These trainings are held online from 9 a.m. to noon Eastern for the first two days and 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern for the third day.
