April Breakfast Meeting 2020

“Everything That I Needed to Learn About Inclusion, I Learned in Kindergarten…”

Presented By: Jennifer Veneziani

Take a trip down memory lane and think about your Kindergarten teacher.  What did they teach you and how can you apply those principles to your current job?  In a tight labor market, it is imperative to get creative and meet talent acquisition demands.  Let’s get back to basics and learn about how inclusive hiring with appropriate support services can work for your organization.

Learning Objectives:

· Participants will be able to revisit the importance of hiring diverse population and the positive impact that it has on workplace culture.

· Participants will have an overview of diversity initiatives within the State of NJ for people with disabilities.

· Participants will learn more about the fundamentals of the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and be able to attract diverse talent to their organizations.

· Participants will understand how to orient a new employee with a disability and work collaboratively with the job coach when applicable.

· Participants will leave the presentation with a greater understanding of accommodations in the workplace as well as ways to get assistive technology services through community resources.
