June 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
6/18/2020 – 6/18/2020
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Bring you own lunch and join us for a workshop!
Creating best practices around hiring and employment where people with disabilities participate fully and meaningfully in order to foster a culture of inclusion. Learn about asking interview questions of someone with a disability, disclosure, accommodation and other sensitive issues. This will be a “safe space” with other employer and business representatives. Lynn wants you to know she is not with the ADA Police; she’s here to help – you, your employees and your future employees. It is estimated that as much 37% of the workforce has undisclosed disabilities, so this is not just about proactively bringing on those who do disclose; but about being prepared to engage with an aging workforce and an ever-increasingly diverse group of employees. Disability is one of the last frontiers of diversity!
