ASU lecturer cited in article that explores workplace discrimination
In the recent opinion article "ASU’s diversity training needs to be more inclusive of disability language," Haley Tenore, a columnist with The State Press, shares her findings on ASU’s diversity training. According to Tenore, ASU's diversity training does a great job of explaining race, gender and sexuality, but its section on disability language needs improvement.
In support of her article, Tenore reached out to Krista Puruhito, a lecturer in ASU’s School of Social and Family Dynamics. The two discussed discrimination against those who have a disability, known as ableism.
“A lot of people know what racist or sexist means, but if I say ableist they don’t know what that means,” said Puruhito.
