Building a culture of institution at any business, organization or agency can be an incredible challenge. Hiring talented employees with disabilities and securing their return on investment requires any organization to build towards the goals of attitude, accessibility, accommodations and assimilation. This webinar, based a presentation recently given at the Starkloff 2019 Workforce, Workplace Disability Summit, will discuss how to leverage internal, external and new communications strategies to promote disability inclusion. This presentation will reflect on best practices pioneered by public sector entities like the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), private sector companies like JP Morgan Chase and Coca-Cola as well as non-profit efforts like the National Organization on Disability and the Poses Workplace Initiative. Please join us for the comprehensive and detailed learning session!
