Lead the Way: Building an Inclusive Business Culture

 The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy recently published “Business Strategies that Work: A Framework for Disability Inclusion.” This guide for employers focuses on policies and practices for recruiting, hiring, retaining, and advancing qualified individuals with disabilities and ensuring that the workplace is truly diverse and inclusive. It is organized into seven action areas.

This webinar focuses on the key action area of establishing an inclusive business culture. During this webinar you will learn from a business that is acknowledged as a leader in inclusiveness how they approach inclusiveness for all their employees, why this is a top global priority for them, and how they build awareness within their company.  You will also learn how the company’s goal of an inclusive and diverse workplace is communicated to employees at all levels of the organization. Finally, they will share educational materials that they developed as well as lessons learned.
