Free Webinar Recording: Leveraging Differences You Didn’t Know Existed

July 23, 2012

Original date: July 31, 2012
Presented by: Nadine Vogel

Job seekers and employees with disabilities are regularly faced with the decision of whether to disclose their disability or difference, and if they do, there is uncertainty of when, how, to whom and for what purpose. When someone does disclose, employers are faced with knowing how to appropriately respond and leverage that difference. No matter the country, although employers want to leverage every employees unique attributes and differences, it is clear that when it comes to employees with disabilities, they are mostly struggling with how to get these individuals comfortable disclosing in the first place.

This pre-recorded webinar will address this complex issue from the perspective of corporate culture, fear and confusion of employers and employees alike and solution based tools and best practices. At the end of the day it is about providing guidance to help these individuals make such decisions with thought, care and knowledge while helping the diversity, human resource and other professionals respond in that same manner. Only then can the leverage begin.
