Disability Disclosure and Workplace AccommodationsExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 — 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM EST

Inclusion means casting the broadest net possible, and when we invite people with diverse perspectives to participate fully in the workplace, it adds value to an organization. Discover Ability Network (DAN), a program of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce connects businesses to job seekers with a disability. DAN will be facilitating a workshop on Disability Disclosure and Workplace Accommodations and discussing positive workplace culture.

If you identify as a person with a disability or are studying in a program that will work with or support barriered groups, we invite you to join us.

Workshop topics will include:

  • Re-defining disability more productively in the workplace.
  • Exploring employers’ and disabled people’s perspectives on disclosing a disability.
  • Options for disability disclosure for interviews, co-op positions, as well as within the workplace.
  • Best practices of disability disclosure.  
  • Learning about the advantages and disadvantages of disclosure and how to encourage or request accommodations at work.

Attending this workshop will give you a chance to gain more information about how to engage in disclosure and accommodation conversations!
