By 2005, employers, including the Government have to file compliance or failure in the most underestimated and misunderstood aspect of our country's transformation process: Disability Equity. Unlike race and, to a lesser extent, gender, disability has been inadequately addressed in terms of the designated groups highlighted within the Employment Equity Act (EEA).
Why should you attend?
Who exactly are "People with Disabilities"
What is disability equity?
Is it all about jobs, or is it about skills development?
How equitable are we really when it comes to employing people with disabilities?
Do we know what our employees with disablities needs, aspirations and challenges are?
Are our executives and managers informed enough about disability to be able to serve staff and customers with disabilities?
Are our buildings and facilities accessible to staff and customers with Disabilities?
How accessible is society in general to persons with Disabilities?
If you have answered "no" or "I dont know" to any of the above, you may wish to attend this seminar and explore a strategic Disability Intergration Process.
Benefits and achievable outcomes of strategic Disability Intergration:
