Join us for April’s Lunch and Learn

April 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Beyond Accessibility: Promoting a Culture of Disability Inclusion, part 1

Disability inclusion is about more than just physical accessibility; it’s about creating an environment where individuals with disabilities, whether observable or invisible, feel valued, understood, and supported. To do this, we must recognize the unique challenges they face and the unique skills they bring to the workplace. By identifying the broad spectrum of disabilities, implementing supportive policies and practices, leveraging technology, and promoting participation and leadership, organizations can move towards true inclusivity. In this two-part series, we will go beyond mere accessibility measures to explore how organizations can foster a culture of genuine inclusion for individuals with disabilities.

Participants will:
• Understand the difference between accessibility and disability inclusion.
• Explore the benefits of promoting a culture of disability inclusion in the workplace.
• Gain practical insights into creating environments where individuals of all abilities feel valued and respected.

“A genuinely inclusive workplace not only benefits employees with disabilities but enriches the entire organization, fostering innovation, empathy, and a culture of respect and understanding.”
-Puneet Siingha
