Description

Accessibility in Employment: Presentation and Discussion

Hosted by McMaster’s Employee Accessibility Network

  • Do you work at any of McMaster’s campuses; e.g., as staff, faculty, TAs/RAs, student employees?

  • Do you personally identify with disability-related issues; e.g., experience disability, disablement, chronic illness, and/or a health, mental health, addiction, or accessibility concern?

  • Are you interested in meeting confidentially with other employees with disabilities to share information and offer suggestions for enhancing accessibility at McMaster?

We invite you to join a facilitated presentation and discussion!

What will we discuss?

  • Common themes/barriers that Hamilton employees with disabilities raise with regards to applying for, retaining, and advancing in employment

  • Changes over time in the local context of employers hiring people with disabilities

  • Disclosure / redisclosure of disability in the workplace

  • Examples and brainstorming options for accommodations in the workplace

  • Priorities for advancing accessibility and inclusion for employees with disabilities at McMaster → developing action items!
