Event Description

Building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive workplace is far from a new concept. Most know the tangible benefits that diverse teams bring to innovation, problem-solving and the bottom-line. However, adding disability inclusion as a formal and prevalent part of this equation is new for many organizations.

In this lively panel discussion, you will hear real stories from employees with disabilities in leading companies. Moderated by inQUEST’s CEO Scott Hoesman, businesses will gain valuable understanding and practical tips for building a workplace that successfully includes qualified persons with disabilities. Additionally, a representative from the Department of Labor/OFCCP will answer your questions and share success tips related to the new 7% representation goal for qualified individuals with disabilities.
