JJ's List: Disability Awareness Training, presented in partnership with IFP Chicago

JJ's List Provides FREE Disability Awareness Training!

JJ's List is opening up a FREE disability awareness training workshop for film and media makers in Chicago on on Wednesday, February 8th from 3-5PM. The event is in partnership with IFP Chicago, Kartemquin Films, Kindling Group, and See3 Communications and will take place at the Kindling Group/See 3 Communications office (4021 North Broadway Street).


Any employee who want to build confidence and comfort in how to communicate with customers, co-workers or potential hires who have disabilities will benefit from this training. The trainings are highly interactive and consistently earn rave reviews from participants...and, they are a lot of fun! The Disability Awareness Players are experts in disability because they have disabilities. They don’t tell you how high to build store counters or how wide to make office passageways. They help you feel great about communicating with the fastest growing consumer base in the country…people with disabilities. And they are all volunteers. 

The hands-on experience includes a full cast of expert Disability Awareness Players who use fun tips, trivia, role play and networking to help audiences get over discomfort or fear and to learn disability-aware interaction styles that they can use right away.
