Training Session Overview

Part One - Sensitivity Accessibility and Awareness Training (Tuesday, April 9th 1-3pm)

Part Two - Cultural Awareness Training (Thursday April 11th 1-3pm)


The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians Toronto Chapter, funded by the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund, invites you to participate in a free, important two-part training session for business and organization leaders. In these training sessions, we are taking a closer look into the implications that COVID-19 had on businesses and organizations that hire and employ people with disabilities and on making employees and employers aware of their attitudes, behaviours, and their impact on themselves and others, and to provide creative solutions on how to make a more equitable and diverse workplace.


What are the benefits for employers and hiring managers to take these training sessions?

  • Sensitivity training is group training that focuses on making individuals aware of their attitudes and behaviours and their impact on themselves and others.

  • Accessible interactive training that will teach and support you to enhance your reputation, increase revenue, and gain that competitive edge.

  • Increased patronage from persons with disabilities, their friends, and families.

  • Teach employers and employees how to interact and behave with others appropriately.

  • It will foster a welcoming and safe environment for all.

  • It promotes social sensitivity and behavioural flexibility that ensures better individual and group dynamics.


Objectives of the Training Program:

  • Promote Inclusivity and create an environment in which all individuals, regardless of background, abilities, or traits, feel welcomed and respected.

  • Improve Communication Skills. Develop a deeper knowledge of diverse perspectives to reduce the likelihood of misunderstandings or confrontations.

  • Build empathy and understanding for people with varied experiences, as well as cultivating a culture of compassion and support.

  • Ensure Accessibility. Raise awareness and offer practical solutions to make physical venues, digital platforms, and communication techniques accessible to all people, including those with a disability.


Accommodations: There will be American sign language interpreters (ASL interpreters) and closed captioning in real time (CART).
