Summaries

Summary Sentence: On the complexity of disability as a factor in one’s identity development

Full Summary: Just like race and gender are a critical part of understanding the multicultural world we live, disability is equally significant. Participants will explore the complexity of disability as a relative factor in a person’s identity development. 

ADAPTS and Pi Kappa Phi co-sponsor a conversation on "The Multiculturalism of Disability" as part of Disability Awareness Days. This is the first of three topics to be explored during the day.

About Disability Awareness Days:
Each year ADAPTS hosts a series of events over several days with the goal of to promoting heightened awareness, acceptance, and understanding of persons with disabilities within the Georgia Tech community. This year’s theme, "Exploring the Relativity of Normal," was selected to give the Tech community an opportunity to investigate the qualitative and quantitative constructs of ability.
