By proactively being more inclusive, employers foster an environment that encourages disability self-identification and ensures the creation and sustainability of diverse workplaces. Equally important, employers benefit from a wider pool of talent, skills, and creative business solutions and from achieving compliance with federal regulations. This webinar offers strategies for creating a workplace culture that is welcoming and affirming to applicants and employees with disabilities.
Dr. Beth Loy, Policy Advisor in the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), will provide several strategies for ensuring employees with disabilities feel welcomed and supported. These will include:
- Adding the “A” in accessibility to an organization’s DEI value statement
- Ensuring physical, digital, process, procurement, and communications accessibility
- Cultivating a psychologically safe culture
- Implementing disability employee resource groups
