About the Trainer
Samantha Renke is a broadcaster, actor, campaigner and educator; she wears many hats and has many labels including inspirational and burden.
In the sessions we will take an honest, no bars spared look into how disability is viewed today. We will be unpacking the harmful stereotypes disabled people face and how our own unconscious bias impacts the disability community and adds to further marginalisation of the largest minority group. We will touch on the medical model and social model of disability from Samantha’s own lived experiences whilst addressing ableism and how you can become an ally of the disability community and understand why disability isn’t a dirty word.
