Inclusion doesn’t happen by chance. Employers need to be intentional about their disability initiatives. There is no better time to explore tools and resources for developing and sustaining an intentional disability-inclusive workplace culture than during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). The reasons for embracing workplace disability inclusion go beyond being the “right thing to do.” These include increasing productivity, innovating workplace products and processes, finding the right talent to fill job openings, and meeting your Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility (DEIA) goals. The research is clear – all workplaces benefit from a diverse and inclusive workforce that promotes a strong sense of belonging.
Participants will hear of the many tools and resources provided by the Office of Disability Employment Policy’s (ODEP) employer-focused technical assistance centers.
