DAWG Talks: Conversations That Matter
Dawg Talks: Conversations that Matter is a partnership between the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Office of Undergraduate Advising. This conversation series seeks to engage students, faculty, and staff in a variety of topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. By encouraging courageous conversations, we hope to attract populations from all walks of life and offer a unique lens and a fresh perspective on those around us.
With past topics of religion and spirituality, mental health and disability, race and class, and gender and masculinity, we have opened the doors for conversations that matter. Students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members are welcome to attend.
Video: Exercise as a Path to Inclusion for People Living with Disabilities
Presenters: Kevin McCully and Megan Ware, Department of Kinesiology Description: In this DAWG Talk, the presenters discuss the learning opportunities that exist when partnering student education with a community exercise program for people living with disabilities. The presenters use a case study about the UGA course, “Introduction to Wellness for People with Disabilities,” to bring alive how students, staff, and faculty can raise their awareness about ability privilege and disability-affirming advocacy.
