CDE and EARN to Host January 17 Twitter Chat on Disability-Inclusive Culture

Workplace disability inclusion is about more than hiring; it’s about facilitating a disability-inclusive culture across an organization’s employment lifecycle, from application to onboarding to advancement. On January 17, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. ET, the Campaign for Disability Employment will explore this concept during a Twitter chat with its Member the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN). Representatives from EARN will be on hand to discuss “Inclusion@Work,” its new employer policy framework outlining seven core components of a disability-inclusive workplace. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with EARN and others to learn and share how these components can and are being put into practice by businesses both large and small. Join using the hashtag #CDEInclusion.

Campaign for Disability Employment

The Campaign for Disability Employment's (CDE) What can YOU do?” (WCYD) initiative is a positive outreach initiative aimed at increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities by challenging common misperceptions. It sends a clear message: people with disabilities want to work and their talents and abilities benefit businesses both financially and organizationally. By implementing good workplace practices, such as maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities. All it takes is recognizing the value they add to the workplace and fostering a work culture welcoming of the talents of all individuals. We encourage organizations of all sizes and in all industries to join our effort. Vist WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org to learn more! Contact - info@WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org
