Learn how to create a low-cost, ongoing staff training plan for access and inclusion for all staff and volunteers. How do you identify who within your organization needs what type of training? What is your staff’s comfort level when engaging with people with disabilities? Are there training resources in your community? How do you prioritize the various training topics? How do you train a volunteer base of hundreds of people? How can you train staff when your work is in multiple venues, or rental venues? Where do you begin? Brittany Pyle, Director of Audience Services with the Chicago Humanities Festival, and Lynn Walsh, Manager of Accessibility and Inclusion with Shedd Aquarium will provide you with the tools needed to answer these questions and help you create your own training plan.
