Workshops offered at your Workplace

Demystify Disability Etiquette

Disability Etiquette Workshops help employees become more comfortable interacting with customers, the public, and employees who have disabilities. Host a Disability Etiquette Workshop at your workplace and your employees will learn: how to create a welcoming environment for customers, the public, and employees; how to effectively interact with people with diverse abilities; what to say and appropriate behavior when working with the public or an employee with a disability.


The city-wide ReelAbilities Film & Arts Festival offers programming for management or employees: companies are invited to host a screening of a disability-related film or speaker-led discussion at your site.
