Disability Education Series-Session II: Inclusive Hiring Practices, Okemos
Over 21.4 percent of today’s workforce in the United States consists of people with a disability who represent a significant and largely underutilized resource for businesses. Many disabled people are underemployed or unemployed. With more attention now on the disability community and a shrinking labor pool, employers are taking a serious look at hiring and retaining people with disabilities. This half-day workshop will give supervisors, managers, diversity practitioners and human-resource professionals the tools and resources needed for creating a more welcoming and diverse workplace. Session II focuses on inclusive hiring practices and ways you can utilize these in your everyday hiring and recruiting practices, creating a more inclusive and welcoming workplace. Join us for a VIP lunch immediately following Session II where the discussion will continue with the keynote speaker and panelists. Lunch attendees will help set the discussion for the next event, Session III. Visit this event on Eventbrite.com.
