Organization-Wide Inclusion & Accessibility. Everyone Plays a Part
We live in a diverse society. In fact, 1 in 4 adults in the US have a disability. 1 in 5 people worldwide are neurodivergent. Successful organizations are increasingly recognizing the benefits of organization-wide accessibility - for their employees, customers and their business.
In this webinar, hosted by EARN (Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion) you'll hear from two inclusion experts on what it means to be accessible and inclusive of staff with disabilities, both inside and outside the workplace. Take away actionable steps that can help you to improve accessibility across your whole organization, whether it's large or small. Discover advice to help you address the accessibility of external facing content, such as your company website.
Whether you're already leading the way for accessibility, or are just at the beginning of the journey this webinar can benefit you.
About this webinar
Accessibility is the foundation of an inclusive, supportive workplace. To ensure access for all employees, organizations must focus on and prioritize all aspects of accessibility, including physical and digital accessibility.
To support all employees, including those with disabilities, it’s important that staff at every level understand and embrace a holistic and organization-wide accessibility plan. With an “Accessibility is Everyone’s Responsibility” attitude, organizations will yield numerous benefits including increased productivity, a diverse applicant talent pool, long-term employee retention and a larger often more loyal customer base.
In this webinar, panelists will offer effective strategies employers can use to develop and sustain a fully accessible workplace.
