Implicit Bias in Disability Employment

February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

CJE SeniorLife has partnered with RespectAbility to put on this JDAIM event. The program will challenge us to look at the implicit bias that organizations communicate from basic website design, employment applications, job descriptions and throughout the entire job application process. The program will highlight what a person with a disability experiences before they even consider applying to an organization and what can be done to advocate for the hiring and retention of more people with disabilities.

Closed captioning of this program will be provided by CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) services. American Sign Language service will be provided. To request additional accommodations or ask any other questions about this program, contact CJE at 773.508.1106 or Linkages@cje.net.
