Equal Opportunity, Compliance, and Title IX, Office of Accommodation and Accessibility Services (OEOC-AAS) celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month. The theme for NDEAM 2022, "Disability: Part of the Equity Equation," recognizes the vital role people with disabilities play in making the nation's workforce diverse and inclusive. OEOC-AAS will be hosting webinars, movie screening, and a disability awareness recognition event for the 2022 Celebration. Join us to celebrating Disability Awareness.
Neurodiverse employees are a valuable asset to all organizations, though their potential is often less than maximized as an accidental result of workspaces that are not fully accessible and inclusive. This presentation will help employers understand how to support neurodiverse workers through the implementation of universal design and the cultivation of inclusive work culture. Emphasis will be placed on real-world strategies and techniques that can be immediately implemented in order to increase job satisfaction, productivity, and employee retention.
Presenter: Adam Lalor, Ph.D.
Vice President of Neurodiversity Research and Innovation
