ETI is seeking a talented and driven Program Intern to work closely with ETI’s Integration Programs Director to ensure the smooth running of ETI’s Integrations Program events.
The ETI Integrations Program raises awareness and encourages various sectors (education, private, government, and the general public) to exemplify integration and inclusion in practice and to include more persons with disabilities in daily life so as to break down social stigmas.
Integration Programs are blindfolded, facilitated experiences that allow participants to shed preconceived notions of themselves and others when interacting for the first time, allowing them to be blind to certain labels. This facilitates authentic dialogue and conversations about racism, prejudice, sexism, ageism and ableism, prompting participants to rethink their assumptions about one another, their abilities, and the potential of others.
