2020 Tapia Conference

Inclusive Hiring Practices for People with Disabilities

Friday, September 18, 2020 — 12:30PM - 1:15PM

Most tech companies’ diversity initiatives primarily focus on race and gender, but some companies are addressing disability as an aspect of diversity as well. Over the past few years, some tech companies have developed initiatives designed to recruit and retain employees with disabilities. Some of these initiatives specifically address hiring employees with autism; other initiatives address hiring people with disabilities more broadly. Panelists will describe inclusive hiring practices in their company, providing useful information for individuals with disabilities who are on the job market and offer advice to other employers who want to diversity their workforce by recruiting and retaining employees with disabilities.

Panelists:
Brianna Blaser, Brianna Blaser, Neil Barnett, Catherine Nichols, Kiran Kaja
