Join the Bond Disability and Development Group (DDG) for an interactive and practical workshop on inclusive approaches, learning and good practice. .. Read more In this webinar, we want to facilitate an open discussion about how different organisations approach the language of inclusion and disability in their communications with the media and supporters. In this interactive online workshop, we want to identify a common understanding of inclusion and rights-based approaches, and the importance of cultural context. The session will start by setting the scene on what inclusive communication and language means in today’s media landscape, as well as and the effect of inaccurate communications and inappropriate language on the lives of people with disabilities and other marginalised groups. The breakout sessions will explore in more detail participants own experiences and what works, while having an opportunity to have a more in-depth exchange with speakers in a safe space. The breakout sessions will be under Chatham house rules. We will record the sessions for our learning document, but the recording will  not be shared publicly to encourage participants to share their experiences and opinions in confidence.
