Breaking Down Disability Stigma - EP 27

4/9/2024
How do we dismantle the disability stigma? This latest arc on the Care Work podcast explores the concept of disability justice from the perspectives of three people—Tim Villegas, María Emilia Lasso de la Vega, and Lauren Schrero Levy—who are working to change our social approach to accessibility and inclusivity. In this episode, Alida Miranda-Wolff reflects on the ways stigma and a repurposed definition of “normal” have impacted disability justice, from the history of society’s aversion to disability to the possibility of a future where people with different abilities are viewed not as inconveniences but as essential contributors to our communities.

Embracing Interdependence Creating Inclusive Communities with Lauren Schrero - EP 26

3/26/2024
From elementary school classrooms to adult care homes, so many of our care structures for disabled people are designed without their participation, often in direct opposition to their stated desires. But why? When we pose the question of why people with disabilities are so often excluded from general society, the best answer is often “that’s just how it’s always been.” However, research and the lived experiences of these individuals suggest that creating inclusive environments could have a significant positive impact on our communities. Lauren Schrero Levy, a disability rights advocate and lawyer, shares with Alida what she has learned since founding the disability advocacy nonprofit The Nora Project and serving as a civil rights lawyer at Equip for Equality. Together, they explore the challenges in our current institutions for people with disabilities and the promise of inclusive spaces.

Designing For Neurodiversity Inclusivity with María Emilia Lasso de la Vega - EP 25

3/12/2024
How can we design inclusive spaces—physically and virtually—that support neurodiversity? The Disability Justice movement is increasing the recognition and adoption of inclusive spaces and accessible interaction for people who are neurodivergent and on the autism spectrum. It continues, however, to rely largely on individuals to disclose their diagnoses in spaces where they may initially be uncertain of support. In this episode, María Emilia Lasso de la Vega, the Training and Programs Facilitator and Technical Facilitation Manager at Ethos, speaks with Alida about her holistically inclusive approach to taking care of others. She incorporates inclusive design practices to erect both physical and digital spaces that accommodate every person, regardless of where they fall under the neurodiversity umbrella.

Building Toward the Future of Literacy Equity with Ken Bigger - EP 22

The Balance Between Work and Self with Karyn Oates - EP 11

How do you strike a balance between committing to your work and honoring your own personhood? The simple answer is by setting boundaries. What’s more complicated, though, is that these boundaries are hugely individual and can be difficult to set and to maintain, especially for people in care work. In this interview, Karyn Oates, the consulting director for Ethos and a former nonprofit leader, shares her thoughts on the importance of choice and respect at work and the role of organizations in making sure their employees know their choices and feel that respect.
