People with disabilities face many challenges in our world, including an unemployment rate nearly double that of people without disabilities. Barriers related to both visible and invisible disabilities can make individuals feel excluded—and defined—by their disability. But organizations are working hard to open the doors of opportunity in the workplace, in the ways they engage with customers, and in our communities.
Join Catalyst for a roundtable discussion on how companies can create a more inclusive and equitable world for persons with disabilities.
During this roundtable, we will explore how individuals and organizations are creating change and driving impact through workplace inclusion. We will discuss how inclusive environments are created, including the importance of valuing individuals for their uniqueness (difference) and belongingness (sameness or commonalities) to ensure they feel included at work and beyond.
We invite executives, HR leaders, diversity and inclusion practitioners, and champions of inclusion from other parts of your business. Registration is complimentary for Catalyst Supporter organizations. Each company may send up to two attendees. Space is limited, so early registration is recommended.
Registration is open through March 17, 2017. For more information, contact Joanna Harper at [email protected].
