Workshop for employers: Diversity of disability and access needs

About the workshop:

Accomodating access needs is very often easier than it sounds. This workshop is a unique opportunity to gain first-hand insight into the diversity of disability, how to communicate openly about access needs, and how to effectively accommodate your disabled employees.

Facilitated by:
