The pandemic has exposed and exacerbated inequalities, societal attitudes, and practices that discriminate against and devalue people who have or are perceived to have disabilities. Decisions based on stereotypes about an individual’s disability and assumptions about another’s quality of life are dangerous, especially in healthcare. Resource allocation, standards of care, and even medical rationing and triage protocols can be negatively affected by incorrect assumptions.
In this fifth annual diversity event developed by the WSBA and the Washington Attorneys with Disabilities Association, a panel of experts will explore disability ethics, discuss ableism and equitable practices, and talk about respect for disability culture and ways to align with the disability justice movement during the coronavirus pandemic.
Join us for a post-CLE reception from 4 to 5 p.m.!
A virtual reception with members of the Washington Attorneys with Disabilities Association will follow the webinar.
