ReThink workshop: Disabilities & The Media
Thursday, January 27, 2011
Facilitator: Rachel Schooley
This workshop will discuss images, stereotypes and portrayals of persons with disabilities in the media, and how these portrayals affect the lived experiences of persons with disabilities.
The ReThink campaign was created to address these issues as they occur on our campus at the University of Guelph. The reality is that injustice, social inequality, violence, and bullying happen everywhere in the world and Guelph is not immune. Over the years, Guelph has become more and more diverse, and it is our responsibility to make sure that we are respectful of the beliefs, cultures, and experiences of all of our fellow students, peers, and workers.
