Workshops

Over time, we have developed an informative workshop that is crammed-pack of permanent information. We believe that our workshop would be beneficial for all to hear–especially those who work closely with customers and are the face of the company.  bring disability awareness to customer service and human resources. In our training, we touch on the topics of: 

  • Why hire people with disabilities?
  • Disability Etiquette (ex. language, interaction)
  • Disability law overview
  • Accessibility, Inclusion & Opportunity

AbiliTrek understands that access extends beyond eliminating physical and virtual barriers. Social barriers are what stand in the way of an equal opportunity.

Our team has the capability to educate your community–whether that is a university or a workplace–about the complex issues that make up the definition of disability. We desire to teach the world and change perspective on the definition of disability so that access–both in the physical and social sense–-can be obtained by the disability community.

We welcome the opportunity to assist businesses and universities in becoming more inclusive to people with disabilities and are committed to eliminating ableism in our culture. We offer hourly or fixed-rate, project-based contracts.

BENEFITS OF OUR SERVICE:

We can help your market and your community grow. 

With over 58 million people living with a disability in the United States, this provides for a greatly underrepresented minority. Making your place of business or meeting more welcoming through a better understanding could prove to be not only beneficial to the disability community, but you as well. 

OUR APPROACH IS UNIQUE:

  • Employee experience: CEO Daman Wandke’s & CAO Kyann Flint’s hundreds of speaking engagements
    • Wandke: TEDx, TAG, WWU, panels
    • Flint: 2012-present; primary- post-secondary and admin. audiences; panels; Ms. Wheelchair WA 2017
  • We provide unique value: We offer a unique perspective on usability based on life-long accessibility experiences as travelers and customers with disabilities. We also have had countless experiences with customer service staff who unfortunately have not had training in disability etiquette, offending and dissuading customers with disabilities from future visits (and recommendations to their friends). Don’t let this happen to your business!
  • We believe accessibility is not “one size fits all”: Accessibility cannot be placed in a stereotypical box; one type of accommodation often will not work for all. We have familiarity with limited dexterity, mobility, blind and deaf adaptations.
