DSE School Community Workshops

Marin County Inclusion Inspiration Series

After a high level of interest in the series last year DSE and MCOE, in collaboration with Changing Perspectives, are pleased to offer year two of the Marin County Inclusion Inspiration Series for the 2022-2023 school year. The following set of four live community online workshops will be geared towards supporting educators, administrators, and parents of Marin County, California in increasing their knowledge, understanding and perspectives on the value and application of inclusion of students with disabilities.

Each workshop will be done via Zoom and will be available with Spanish translations and closed captions. Workshops will be facilitated by Sam Drazin, Executive Director of Changing Perspectives.

The Interaction between Disability and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiatives


Disability is often left out of conversations around DEI. However, with disability being the largest minority in the world it is important to consider the intersectionality between disability and DEI initiatives. During this workshop, we will explore intersectionality and dive into concepts of ableism and consider how identity plays an important role in successful DEI programming. No one form of identity can be considered in isolation, but rather we must consider how disability is just one component of identity.
