Just-in-Time Toolkit for Managers: Building a Disability Inclusive Workforce

 Managers in business today play a key role in the success of their business. They also play a key role in ensuring that everyone, including people with disabilities, can fully contribute to organizational goals. As we prepare for the workforce of tomorrow, being disability inclusive will become increasingly key to optimal operation of every company in NYS. And, managers and supervisors will be key players in making disability inclusiveness happen.

Legal compliance alone is not an effective means to ensure the optimal functioning of a business and Managers need to know this. Disability inclusiveness is. Disability inclusiveness means having workplace practices that ensure that everyone, including people with disabilities, has an opportunity to go as far as their talents and skills can take them.

That's what the Manager's Just-in-Time Toolkit is about. Each of its ten tools are based on questions faced by managers as they deal with disability issues within their work teams. Each tool is based on a disability issue managers typically encounter in the workplace and each has been designed to be used in about five minutes. Our presenters will discuss the tool, the value of its development and how those of us in the field should use it to help New York State support an Inclusive Workforce.
