Building Back Better: Utilizing Lessons Learned During COVID-19 for Inclusivity and Retention
Thursday, October 14, and Thursday, Oct 21: 2-3 p.m. ET

Join the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved’s (ACU) STARCenter and experts from Ainey Volion Consulting for a webinar on inclusivity in the workplace for people with physical disabilities, people that are d/Deaf, blind, and visually impaired, and neurodiverse people. According to Fortune, this autumn, 65 percent of employees are seeking new jobs, up from 36 percent in May. These workers are requiring equitable compensation, flexible work environments, and inclusive cultures – making justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion more critical every day.  This webinar series will provide participants with information and tools to use for increased inclusivity. Taking the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, folks will be able to work toward building a culture of belonging for everyone, with a focus on individuals with disabilities and neurodiverse people.

Learning outcomes:

  1. Understand how to recruit people that have various disabilities
  2. Identify ways in which to effectively and respectfully communicate with people who have various disabilities
  3. Implement lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and working from home
  4. Understand accommodations that may be needed or asked for by the workforce

Ainey Volion Consulting wants participants to know that this is a safe space to ask questions about working and engaging with people with disabilities.
