The Disability Pride virtual team building event shares the stories of the individuals and coalitions who have fought for the civil rights for disabled people in the United States from the 1600s to the present. Your team will hear engaging stories about the rise of the disability rights movement and the battle to pass the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990.

A Celebration

Your team will also learn about those continuing to fight for justice post-ADA, including Alice Wong, the creator of the Disability Visibility Project; Sins Invalid, a performance collective that centers queer artists of color; and Haben Girma, the first deafblind graduate of Harvard Law School.

Plus, your team will enjoy an immersive, live-streaming visit to California’s East Bay, the seat of historic disability activism, where we’ll see UC-Berkeley’s Sproul Hall, the site of some of the most impactful civil rights protests in American history and home to the first Disabled Students Program in the country.

We’ll also visit the first community artwork created entirely by people who have experienced or been touched by disability. And, we’ll dive into trivia about celebrities uplifting disability representation historically and today.

This is NOT a lecture but rather a celebration of the lives and achievements of members of diverse disability communities while also acknowledging the work yet to be done to achieve an accessible world.

Disability Pride Virtual Tour Details

What are the team building activities for the Disability Pride Month Virtual Tour?

The Disability Pride Month virtual tour activities include a live-streaming visit to California’s East Bay, the seat of historic disability activism, where we’ll see UC-Berkeley’s Sproul Hall, the site of some of the most impactful civil rights protests in American history and home to the first Disabled Students Program in the country.

We’ll also visit the first community artwork created entirely by people who have experienced or been touched by disability.

And, we’ll dive into trivia about celebrities uplifting disability representation historically and today.

Could we give a short introduction?

Absolutely, corporate groups are welcome to provide a short introduction. We allocate about 3 minutes to the introduction.

Could you provide a video promo to get our employees excited?

Can you start the event late if our team is running behind?

Generally, no. Your event will start promptly to ensure that your event ends on time. We will admit your team members throughout the event.

Is this an uplifting experience?

Yes, the Disability Pride virtual experience is an uplifting experience. Despite discussing hard history like the fight for civil rights for disabled people in the United States, it’s a celebration of the lives and acheivements of members of diverse disability communities while also acknowledging the work yet to be done to achieve an accessible world.

What ROI does this experience provide?

Specifically, the DEIA learner concept in this experience is unconcious bias and the strategic use of counter-stereotypes to combat it.

Aditionally, this experience answers many important questions. For example, why should businesses tell stories of diverse leaders? Or, why do diversity and equity committees have impact? Lastly, how do DEI committees provide ROI for companies?

Futhermore, the Good Trouble event shows how teaching Black history led to the work of the Civil Rights Movement. Amplifying minority achievement led to significant social change.
