Black DSPs Matter Part Three: Practical Solutions

Sep 29, 2021 | Webinars

In 2020, the NADSP shared a statement of solidarity to those feeling the pain of systemic racism and marginalization. We categorically dismiss anyone or any system that discriminates against people and recognize that a large part of our mission is to promote system reform. With this in mind, we have worked to create programing and information that is presented by people of color and support direct support professionals in the intellectual and developmental disability service system.

The NADSP is committed to recognizing and enhancing the direct support workforce. The demographics of this workforce shows us that a majority of direct support professionals are people of color, particularly women. Our system of supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities has historically relied heavily on this marginalized workforce. Over the next few months, the NADSP will present three in-depth webinars looking into race and the direct support workforce.

Our intention with this webinar series is to provide awareness and understanding of the experiences that black direct support professionals may face. In the third and final session, we will work with a trainer to examine practical solutions and provide the necessary resources and tools for those looking to effect change.
