Disability as Diversity on the Job
How is inclusion practiced in our workplace?
Learn more about what disability, the interactive process, and accommodation are about, as well as challenges that affect the connection with campus resources in this dynamic session.
Diversity is a core value that enhances our work as well as our academic arenas, and being able to welcome, respect and effectively interact with our campus members with disabilities is essential.
Providing reasonable accommodation is part of UMBC's core value, and the Office of Accessibility and Disability Services staff has designed this training to explain the process and offer expert guidance.
This training provides faculty and staff with information to understand disability and inclusion, along with basic and intermediate skills for navigating the accommodation request and referral process. The training will also identify campus processes and services that support faculty, staff, students and visitors with disabilities.
Join us as we explore strategies for inclusion that enhance diversity on the job.
