Professional Development Experience for Employees with Disabilities

 You take pride in being a good employee and strive to contribute to your company in a meaningful way. However, at times you feel like your professional growth has been challenged, perhaps by the false assumptions and the stigmatizing beliefs you have encountered. You have career goals you have not yet reached and would benefit from a chance to reflect on your strengths and think through the skills you need to hone in order to take that next step in your career. Further, you need strategies you can use to put this information into action.

Cornell University's Enhancing Skills Needed in Today's Workplace Professional Development Program for Employees with Disabilities was created with you in mind. This 2.5 day program is designed to supplement the general leadership/career enhancement training you have attended through your current place of employment. This program will help build on those prior experiences and specifically explore the ways in which disability may both positively and adversely impact opportunities for professional growth. The primary goal of this program is to provide experiences and strategies to empower professionals with disabilities to maximize their potential, increase their engagement, and expand their contribution in the workplace.

Citizen-Centered Leadership Open House

This webinar will introduce the premiere framework and foundation for the Community of Practice that distinguishes the Citizen-Centered Leadership course of study from every other on-line resource currently available and provide a brief overview of the six core areas that focus participants in sound theory and practice.

  • Citizenship and Leadership: creating opportunities of empowerment with and on behalf of people with disabilities
  • Community-Building Imperative: exploring the role that perception of disability plays in the architecture and allocation of service resources
  • Person-Centered Planning: provides the philosophic framework around which the entire course is organized
  • The Abundant Community: shifting the social status of people with disabilities from “consumer” to “contributor”
  • Making a Life by Making a Living: a step-by-step approach to supporting people with disabilities take their place in the world of work
  • A Call to Action: strategic planning approaches to service transformation

In just a half hour you will understand why the Citizen Centered Leadership Community of Practice is the single best resource in shifting the patterns that have kept people with disabilities out of typical community experience for far too long.
