Workplace Training Event: Bridging the Divide - How to Support Workers with Disabilities in Your Workplace
With Brenda Kelleher-Flight, Ph.D., Business Consultant at GDP Consulting
Thursday, March 23 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific (2:00 p.m. Eastern)
By recognizing the potential limitations that flow from specific impairments, employers and co-workers can identify the types of accommodations people with disabilities/exceptionalities require. This ensures that they can participate in an informed manner in the workplace. When managers and employees are equipped to help people with disabilities determine the options that meet their individual needs, they ensure that workers can effectively fulfill the expectations of their role. Other potential benefits include a reduction in lost work time, increased productivity, and faster assimilation of workers with disabilities into the team. Join us for this workplace training event where Brenda will address examples of activity limitations and accommodations essential for persons with chronic mobility limitations, physical and mental health conditions, cognitive impairments, learning disabilities, sensory disorders, and neurodiversity.
