RECORDING: Disability as the Natural Diversity of Humankind: Disability Inclusion in the Workplace

Destigmatized: Visible and invisible Disabilities and Neurodivergence

Public speaker and DEI consultant Catarina Rivera reminds us that disability is not a flaw, but simply the natural diversity of humankind. Through this lens, diversity inclusion in the workplace comes into sharper focus. In this pre-recorded session, Catarina will explain how organizations can practice digital inclusion, increase their disability awareness, avoid ableism, and more.
