CJE SeniorLife + RespectAbility: Implicit Bias in Disability Employment

Read the transcript

CJE SeniorLife partnered with RespectAbility to put on this JDAIM event. The program challenged attendees to look at the implicit bias that organizations communicate from basic website design, employment applications, job descriptions and throughout the entire job application process. The program highlighted what a person with a disability experiences before they even consider applying to an organization and what can be done to advocate for the hiring and retention of more people with disabilities.
