What's On

Ableism in Academics

A compassionate community of free religious thought, inviting all people to rest, grow, and serve the world.

Professor Thomas Hehir wrote a paper about how to eliminate ableism in schools all the way back in 2002. While many of his ideas are being implemented in our public school systems, Katie wants to challenge us to think of ways we can better implement his ideas.

Speaker: Katie Steppke

Katie is an Educational Assistant at St. Pius X school in Edmonton, who has a passion for helping students reach their full potential. She is also the stepmother of a young man with ADHD. She struggled a lot in school and wants school to be less of a stressful experience for everyone. Katie wants social justice especially when it comes to alleviating the problems concerning ableism, classism, and gender norms. Katie is doing this presentation because she knows the power of education and how it can help create a more equitable world.
