Qoute from the Presenter
“In my 35 years of getting to know, work with, and learn from people with disabilities, I have seen again and again how important it is to have well supported supporters - to create workplace environments that increase the likelihood of excellent support for people we serve AND enhance the engagement and job satisfaction of those doing the work. We talk about respecting people with disabilities, but let’s not forget about what truly respecting each other as fellow colleagues can look like! This is about staying person-centered while recognizing the gifts that paid supporters bring to their work, and how everyone benefits when we listen, collaborate, and celebrate with each other.” - Peter Leidy
