Disability Accommodation?

If your company is like most other large companies, it has probably expanded its diversity strategy to also include a focus on inclusion. Clarifying the distinction between the two is important because the interventions that are necessary for promoting employee experiences of inclusion are not necessarily the same as those that promote workforce diversification. Lisa Nishii, associate professor of human resource studies and chair of ILR International Programs, moderates this webcast, drawing upon discussions from Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS) working groups, as well as academic research on diversity and inclusion, to highlight: some of the nuances that determine the effectiveness of diversity practices; the ways in which common diversity “best practices” do and don’t help ensure employee experiences of inclusion; and new approaches organizations should consider to more effectively promote inclusion.
