The Disability Inclusion Network emerged from a conversation about how to create more opportunities to promote disability awareness, visibility, and pride across our campuses and is open to people with and without disability.
UOW Disability Inclusion Network
The goal of the network is to provide a platform for meaningful conversations about what access and inclusion looks like at UOW, to share information, resources and events, and to act as an informal and community-based support for people with disability and their allies.
The network provides a safe space for people to ask questions, share experiences, resources, research, and allyship and provides an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and be part of a community of support, ideas and practice.
How do I get involved?
Any UOW community member can join, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be added to the UOWDIN chat group and mailing list.
Disability Inclusion online training
All UOWDIN members are encouraged to complete the free online Disability Awareness Training by the Public Service Commission. The modules take 20 minutes to complete.
Introduction to Disability Awareness is a 90 minute eLearning course developed as part of the Australian Government initiative, National Disability Coordination Officer (NDCO) Program and the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training (ADCET).
