Programme Description

Inclusion and accessibility are hot new buzzwords. That’s not a bad thing – it means more are thinking about how society can be more empathetic and kinder. But how can we leverage the movement to make sure “inclusion and accessibility” is not another catch-all phrase that means everything, and therefore nothing?

The Disability Equality Training (DET) workshop is a space for participants to think about barriers and experiences of disabled people. Lay out your stereotypes and misconceptions in our judgement-free zone. We will discuss, explore, and reframe how we see disabilities. And ultimately, gain a deeper understanding of what kind of change the accessibility space needs.

This is a conversation about disabilities, for the disabled and non-disabled. Experiences vary across disabled communities, and so do the views that shape. We encourage participants from all communities to join us, to make for a more enriching discussion where we can learn from each other.

Target Audience

The DET workshop is open to all. It gives non-disabled people a logical explanation of disability and encourages them to become agents of change. It is a method that enables people with disabilities to gain self-empowerment by changing negative perceptions of disability and taking up leadership roles.

Learning Outcomes

The participant will be able to:

  • Understand the definition of inclusivity 
  • Identify root causes of social barriers faced by disabled people
  • Brainstorm ways to minimise barriers faced by disabled people
  • Play the role of changemaker in support of the disability community

Lisa Loh is a Duskin Leadership Training Program alumni. In 2013, she was selected out of thousands of applicants with various disabilities for the 15th Duskin Leadership Training Program in Japan for 10 months. She experienced internships at various disability organisations, and trained in the field of disability studies and DeafBlind welfare system. The training left a great impact on her life. It has broadened her perspective on disability, and played a big role in her personal journey with her Deaf and DeafBlind identity.

In 2014, Lisa had participated in the DET workshop in Japan. She was impressed with the effectiveness of the content delivery and decided to receive training as a facilitator. Since September 2023, she is officially recognised as a registered facilitator of the DET Forum, in collaboration with the Asia-Pacific Development Centre on Disability (APCD) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

In late 2019, Lisa completed her Bachelor’s degree with honours in Disability Studies and Counselling. She has been volunteering for projects and advocacy work related to disability, and the Deaf and DeafBlind communities. She is passionate in promoting complete social acceptance and improving the quality of lives of people with disabilities.

Lisa loves animals. In her free time, she enjoys watching wild and domestic animals, both in real life and videos. She enjoys visiting museums too.
