When we create a container for working with parties in conflict, how can we make sure we’re designing a process that is inclusive of and accessible to people with disabilities? Join Lainey Feingold, disability rights lawyer, public speaker and author of Structured Negotiation: A Winning Alternative to Lawsuits, with the CUC’s Melanie Rowen for a discussion of accessibility culture and mediation. Participants will come away with a better understanding of the intersections of conflict resolution, disability inclusion, and accessibility in the digital and built environment. The 25 year track record of Structured Negotiation as a collaborative dispute resolution process to advance disability rights will also be discussed.
Learning objectives for this webinar include:
- Understanding what digital accessibility means and why it is a civil right of people with disabilities
- Learning practical steps to make mediation and other conflict resolution processes inclusive for people with disabilities in both digital and built environments
- Discovering why Structured Negotiation has been an effective dispute resolution process in digital accessibility cases and beyond for a quarter century and how it integrates with mediation practice
