Writing Diversity: A Four-part Series

Writing Diversity: A Four-part Series Online

Developing characters with diverse identities is a way to enrich your writing. In this class we will discuss the reasons why disability, race, gender, or sexual orientation aren’t always portrayed in the best light within literature and media. We will share examples of good writing on diverse identities and tips on how to create characters with accuracy and empathy.

Luticha André Doucette is a veteran disability justice advocate. She is a graduate of the Leadership and Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) Fellowship program, an AUCD Emerging Leader, an inductee into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame established by the National Disability Mentoring Coalition and the 2020 – 2021 Distinguished Alumni Awardee from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Luticha’s research and writing has been featured in various publications such as Toxicon, The New York Times, and Yes! Magazine. She is the owner of Catalyst Consulting, which helps organizations, leaders, and advocates examine equity across race, gender identity, and disability in policies, practices, procedures, and relationships.
