Creating inclusive environments for Volunteers  with health conditions and disabilities using resources as well as reasonable accommodation tools. Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the culture of disability
  • Understand different styles and support for providing reasonable accommodations for staff and volunteers
  • Identify different types of language when interacting with people with disabilities
  • Learn about techniques for recruiting and acquiring volunteers or staff with disabilities

This session will be hosted by Dori Tempio and Bauer Westeren of Able South Carolina. 

Dori believes that everyone can work together to unlock barriers and create positive change in the community! It’s never more evident as she networks in the community in her role as the Director of Community Outreach and Consumer Rights for Able SC with her sidekick, her service dog Shack. She actively works to build connections with a variety of community agencies as well as state and federal entities to provide resources and tools for individuals with disabilities to achieve their goals of independent living.

Bauer is the Consumer Programs Specialist for Able SC. In this role, he works directly with consumers to support them as they navigate independent living. This includes providing information and referral services, working one-on-one to teach independent living skills, delivering consumer group trainings, and providing outreach to the community. Bauer also supervises and manages volunteers in the Columbia Office.
