Trainings for Nonprofits

The Partnership offers live virtual training modules customized to your organization that are engaging and interactive. 

For all nonprofits:

  • Mitigating Disability Bias Before, During, and After Disasters

In order to provide effective disaster and non-disaster services, nonprofits need to support staff in mitigating disability-based bias. In this interactive workshop, participants are given the opportunity to recognize conscious and unconscious disability bias and learn strategies for interrupting it in themselves and in others. They will also learn about respectful disability language and etiquette.

  • Emergency Management Basics

Familiarize your staff with emergency management basics that are inclusive of people with disabilities. Longstanding systemic barriers, civil rights obligations, good and promising practices will be explored.

  • Emergency Management During Pandemic

Learn how to provide equal access to concurrent disaster services (including shelter, housing, transportation, personal assistants, and durable medical equipment) while maintaining physical distance during disasters and public health emergencies. Civil rights obligations and protections during a pandemic and concurrent disasters are discussed.

  • Strategies for Continuing Work During a Pandemic

Explore strategies that your nonprofit can use to continue to provide services during and after disasters, emergencies, and public health emergencies.

  • Disaster Response: What You Need to Know

Find out what to expect, and what not to expect from government, community, and charity organizations.
Learn what to do when multiple marginalized communities don’t have a seat at the emergency management table.

  • Legal Obligations of Nonprofits During and After Disasters and Public Health Emergencies

This workshop explores the legal obligations of a non-profit that provide disaster-related programs and services under the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and other laws.
