Workshop Overview
This engaging pre-conference workshop will explore the ideals of citizenship as they relate to people who rely heavily on human service disability systems for support and access to typical community experiences. The workshop will include hosted conversations that explore the practice of supporting deep personal and organizational changes that contribute to the full expression of citizenship for people with significant disabilities.

Participants will be introduced to the newly developed Citizen- Centered Leadership Development Community of Practice (CCLD CoP) and the companion book, Conversations on Citizenship and Person-Centered Work, which was derived from interviews with leaders in the field of organization and social change, personcentered planning and non-traditional employment. Using a model that integrates elements from Appreciative Inquiry, the World Café and Circle Practice, the interactive conversations for this workshop will be rooted in core themes from the book.

Anyone who has a genuine desire to support the full participation and inclusion of individuals within community settings will benefit
from participating in this interactive workshop!
