The Workplace Initiative works with companies, governments, nonprofits, and other organizations to foster disability inclusion and drive social impact at scale. We believe that our work is stronger when done in collaboration with others, and we welcome the opportunity to join forces with partners who share our commitment to embracing and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion for all.
We are partnering with SHRM Association to offer extensive micro-credentialing courses that will develop HR professionals' disability inclusion knowledge and skills. Our training programs will include multiple courses designed to build deep understanding of inclusive practices that support the successful employment of people with disabilities.
Workplace Initiative is also partnering with SHRM Foundation to launch the Employing Abilities@Work initiative, which empowers HR professionals to implement best practices to hire, develop, and retain employees with disabilities. It will include a Certificate of Mastery Program, Inclusion Captains to champion best practice, and Innovation Grants to SHRM chapters.
