iDisability® is continually working to create unique content that promotes a more inclusive and diverse workforce. So, we’re excited to announce we’ve added three new modules to help you do just that. 
To continue to help you create a workplace where everyone is present, heard, and valued, we’ve added the following three modules:

  • Review inclusive practices for screening and interviewing applicants with disabilities.
  • Identify best practices for removing barriers.
  • Discuss standard tools used in remote screening with a focus on identifying accessibility considerations for each tool.

This module addresses the importance of mental well-being in the workplace from a business perspective. It focuses on how stigma and employee perception play a role in mental wellness strategy.

  • Review guidance in how to effectively address mental health in the workplace.
  • Receive tips for starting a conversation about mental health awareness and well-being.

A learning takeaway and thought-starter discussion sheet accompany each new module to encourage continued learning.
