More than Meets the Eye: A New Direction for Conversations on Disability

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: June 18, 2020 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: Social Responsibility
Presenter: Jessie Wusthoff, Clover Health

While many companies understand the need to implement legal components related to disability in the workplace, few are confident in approaching the human side of these conversations on disability.
During this webinar, we will introduce different social models around disability and understand how they show up in daily work life. We’ll focus on creating a safe space to understand how these models impact our personal points of view and begin to explore better ways of framing conversations around disability in the workplace.

Presenter: Tawanna Black, Center for Economic Inclusion

Building racially inclusive and equitable workplaces has become even more complex as we are now faced with the challenge of responding to the worsening economic and health disparities created by COVID-19 in many communities throughout the country. Employers can and should play an important role in inclusive recovery efforts, but must be equipped with data informed, market responsive solutions that center people of color. Tawanna Black, Founder and CEO of the Center for Economic Inclusion will facilitate this special Diversity Insights Digital Presentation sharing a framework for racially inclusive recovery for employers.
