Event description

How to be a Good Ally

Disability confidence starts with awareness. As disability education and advocacy experts, we have designed this new workshop to support businesses and organisations to be a good ally to the 1 in 5 Australians with disability or who are d/Deaf.

Covering topics from unconscious bias and ableism to the top issues facing people with disability, this insightful workshop will improve your understanding of disability and provide a comfortable space to ask questions.

Learn about:

  • Open communication – be confident in knowing the appropriate language and etiquette
  • Understanding that one disabled person’s experience is one disabled person’s experience
  • Learn which questions are OK to ask (and which ones aren’t really OK)
  • Facilitating autonomy
  • How to be proactive
  • Ensuring inclusion – “Nothing about us without us”

Attendees will also be provided with useful resources to help their teams also be good allies.


  • 90 minutes
  • Prior to the session we’ll send you links to resources you can refer to before, during and after the workshop.


All sessions are delivered using the Zoom online conferencing platform (Zoom links are provided following booking)
