Title: Disability Inclusion in the Workplace: Best Practices for Engaging and Supporting ALL of Your People
Date: Thursday, January 28, 2021
Time: 02:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Duration: 1 hour
If you have ever sent a text message or interacted with a voice assistant like Siri or Alexa, rest assured you were engaging with technology that was initially developed for people with disabilities. The concept of Universal Design helps us think how products —when designed properly— can be useful for people with a wide spectrum of abilities in a more equitable way. And diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) have become more than just HR checklist items; they’ve grown into a cultural phenomenon that — when executed correctly — has a direct effect on the bottom line. These days, it’s more crucial than ever to ensure that the workplace is embracing this practice, including disability inclusion.
Additionally, 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which makes sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else and has compliance impacts employers need to consider.
Join our expert panel and receive critical insights on:
- How the history of technology is a cultural history and both have much to offer us as we think through building and using products inclusive of the many not just the few
- How a better understanding of human coping mechanisms can help us to develop and use more inclusive products and technology that are designed to serve people as they are, not as we want them to be
- How designing and partnering with vendors who design more inclusive products is good for business – and how compliance plays a part
- How organizations can find creative ways to support their workforce and promote disability inclusion
ADP remains at the forefront of helping employers understand the complex compliance, financial, and strategic issues surrounding workforce management. Tap into our expertise to ensure you’re in the best shape possible for future workplace changes that may come about along the way.
