"This webinar will cover a variety of topics related to disability inclusion in DEI initiatives, including:
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives have become increasingly important in recent years, as organizations strive to create more inclusive and equitable workplaces. But just how inclusive are organizations really, when their DEI initiatives and policies don't include people who have disabilities? In this webinar, we will explore the importance of including disability in DEI efforts, and how organizations can ensure that their DEI initiatives are truly inclusive. We will discuss the unique challenges faced by individuals with disabilities in the workplace, such as accessibility barriers, stigma, and discrimination. We will also look at how organizations can address these challenges through inclusive policies, accommodations, and other efforts. In addition to the social justice aspect of disability inclusion, we will examine the business case for including disability in DEI initiatives.
This includes the benefits of having a diverse workforce, such as increased innovation and creativity, as well as the financial costs of exclusion, such as lost productivity and lawsuits. We will also discuss the role of allies in supporting and advocating for disability inclusion in the workplace, and how individuals can use their privilege and platform to create more inclusive and equitable environments. By the end of this webinar, attendees will have a better understanding of the importance of including disability in DEI efforts, and will have practical strategies for making their own organizations more inclusive and equitable for all employees.
