In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, join us for a program that will be equal parts inspiration and practical tips and tools to empower individuals, ERGs, and communities to do their best work.

This program will feature stories that amplify and uplift the efforts of individuals and employee resource groups working to support people with disabilities both at their organizations and in the communities in which they serve.

Participants will hear…

  • An inspirational story and strategies from Brenna Huckaby, a former competitive gymnast who pivoted to being a snowboarding Paralympic double gold medalist after bone cancer forced the amputation of her right leg. Huckaby will share her personal strategies for success in the face of adversity.
  • Strategies of success from HP Inc’s neurodiversity summer internship program that offers internship opportunities to autistic college students with the possibility of full-time employment. HPI partners with universities nationwide to find qualified applicants and offers personalized training, coaching and mentoring for internship candidates. Selected interns work with a manager and complete a summer-long project. The volunteer-run program is in its fourth year, with plans to expand globally. 
  • Overall disability inclusion strategies from GSK, including their Global Disability Council, DCN ERG, and intersectional membership and leadership. GSK will also share best practices around their accommodations processes, which includes a non-medicalized accommodations approach.
