Fostering genuine change through education
Inclusion Solutions is proud to present the Building Inclusive Schools Project – a series of inspiring presentations to high schools across WA, helping shift bias and foster genuine change from classroom to community.
Hear from Ben Popham OAM, a dual Paralympic gold medalist, world record holder, and Little Telethon Star of 2011, as he shares his personal journey of inclusion and feeling valued in his community as a person with a disability.
Our skilled Inclusion Consultants will delve into social inclusion theory and Social Role Valorization. By leveraging Ben’s personal experiences, we will examine how we can collectively create more inclusive high schools and communities. Students will leave with practical tips on identifying obstacles and promoting the inclusion of all people, empowering them to make a positive impact in their own communities.
