The International Training Centre of the International Labor Organization (ITCILO), in partnership with Cornell University, has created an online self-learning course named “Disability in the Workplace: A Global Perspective.” The 90-minute course is designed for employers and HR professionals, to enable them to design and implement a disability-inclusive strategy.
After completing the course, participants will be able to:
- articulate the business case for hiring, retaining and advancing individuals with disabilities;
- identify the international regulations that support disability-inclusive employer policies and practices;
- discuss the policies and practices needed within their organization to facilitate disability inclusion across the employment process; and
- design and initiate a disability-inclusive strategy tailored to their organization.
The course includes brief videos of experts and people with disabilities, as well as checklists, interactive quizzes and exercises. The course also allows access to self-assessment tools and resources for further learning.
