Managers and supervisors are the front line when it comes to implementing policies and practices designed to support disability inclusion in the workplace. To help employers communicate this critical role to managers and supervisors, the Northeast Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Center developed Communication Tools to Support Disability Inclusion. This guide can assist workplace leaders, including Human Resource professionals, diversity and inclusion managers, business owners and corporate executives, in sending the right messages about disability inclusion. Topics include how disability inclusion benefits businesses, strategies for creating a workplace culture welcoming of people with disabilities, and recruiting and hiring tips.
This new guide offers communication tool templates on 11 topics. Under each topic you will find sample you can adapt to your own organization and tips for using these messages with your managers and supervisors.
