In this interactive workshop, you will learn about how to best support and include people with disabilities in all facets of geoscience. We will practice responding to ableism (discrimination against disabled people), brainstorm ways to increase the accessibility of field trips and research, and more. This workshop will be applicable to anyone involved in natural science, including students and staff.
