With increased government focus on diversity in the private sector, including veterans and individuals with disabilities, employers have even more reason to review their organization’s diversity and inclusion practices. Increased diversity in the workplace has been shown to increase innovation and creativity, reduce turnover, and result in a more qualified workforce. With new federal contractor rules on nondiscrimination and affirmative action for veterans and individuals with disabilities going into effect in March, now is the time to learn about available tools and solutions to increasing your workplace diversity.
In this program, presenters Christine V. Walters, MAS, JD, SPHR of the FiveL Company, and Kathleen Lee, MS of Cornell University’s National Employer Technical Assistance Center on Employment of People with Disabilities, will offer effective practices for defining your diversity strategy and information about key resources to help you succeed, including a free recruitment program that matches employers with qualified students with disabilities.
