As preparation for the job ahead PLAN Institute and its partners are presenting this four-part webinar series to learn from four Canadians with expertise and experience in system change.


Goals of Learning Series:

  • To learn from other successful movements
  • To strengthen the social, political, economic and cultural power of the Canadian disability movement
  • To clarify the role of parents, families, service providers, funders and other allies in supporting disability leadership
  • To secure a Canadian Disability Benefit that is meaningful, inclusive and ends disability poverty

The Power of Inclusive Design

We need a society where it is possible for people, with the full range of human difference, to participate, contribute and benefit from societal supports. One worry is that the Canadian Disability Benefit will exclude too many people. Inclusive design as pioneered by our guest speaker can turn that worry into an opportunity. Her inclusive design framework is intended to be more like a trellis that supports organic growth and provides a foundation from which to innovate and evolve. It has emerged, evolved, been tested, and refined over 25-years history, in dozens of global initiatives. Her design process recognizes human variability and the uniqueness of each individual. It’s an alternative to the one size fits all approach.
