At the University of Miami we are fortunate to be part of an incredibly diverse community. Collectively we strive to create a supportive environment where our unique abilities come together to transform lives and create an inclusive culture of belonging.
October is Disabilities in the Workplace Awareness Month. Join your colleagues at a variety of events to learn more about the resources available at the University and how you can support an inclusive environment for people with disabilities.
This session, The Business Case for Disability Inclusion, will be facilitated by Janet Bringuez-Sanchez, Assistant Director of Programs, for the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement at the Miller School of Medicine. Janet will share insights, challenge assumptions and guide you through a thought-provoking conversation.
