Disability, Inclusion, and Accessibility Webinar to Be Held March 26

At a time when diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and accessibility (DEIBA) has become polarized and is recessing from the focus of organizations, it is important to push back and continue conversations around topics that may be uncomfortable but are backed by science. In this vein, we continue this conversation by diving into the importance of inclusive leadership and psychological safety. Join us as we explore how inclusive leadership fosters psychological safety and empowers all employees, with a particular focus on supporting those with disabilities. Don't miss this chance to learn how to create a thriving workplace culture where everyone can contribute their best.

The SIOP Disability, Inclusion, and Accessibility Committee (DIAC) will put a spotlight on this topic during its March 26 webinar, Beyond Diversity: Fostering Inclusive Leadership for a Workplace that Values Everyone with a Focus on Disability Inclusion. This free webinar will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. ET March 26.

The event webpage includes an event link and password.

Attendees will hear thought-provoking conversations with speakers who have championed disability initiatives and/or advanced this field of research, gaining valuable perspectives on best practices, policies, and innovations that can drive positive change in organizations.

Panelists include:

  • Dr Meisha-ann Martin, Senior Director, People Analytics and Research, Workhuman
  • Garret Rosiek, Regional Continuous Improvement Manager, Essendant
  • Dr Lynn Shore, Partners for Excellence Professor at Colorado State University & Executive Director of the HR Edge Network at CSU

Dr. Pam Maurer, SIOP Disability, Inclusion, and Accessibility Committee (DIAC) member, will host the webinar, with Dr. Christy Nittrouer, from the Texas Tech University Rawls College of Business, as co-host.

Attending this webinar will empower individuals and organizations to take meaningful steps toward greater disability inclusion and accessibility in the workplace, benefiting both employees and employers. Register now and mark your calendars for March 26, when you’ll:

  • Gain valuable insights from experts who are thought leaders, advocates, and change-makers in workplace disability inclusion. Their knowledge and experience will provide a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and solutions related to inclusive leadership that create a psychologically safe space for employees with disabilities.
  • Evaluate the role of psychological safety in promoting well-being and encouraging employees with disabilities to disclose their needs and seek support. This is particularly important for leaders and HR professionals because understanding the connection between psychological safety, well-being, and disability disclosure empowers them to create a work environment where employees feel comfortable seeking support and accommodations, ultimately leading to a happier, more productive workforce.
  • Identify specific actions leaders can take and the types of organizational support needed to cultivate a culture of inclusive leadership that empowers all employees, including those with disabilities. This knowledge will be valuable for employers, HR professionals, policymakers, and academics, who aim to foster a more inclusive and accessible workforce through practice and science.
