Ableism & Inclusion Training
EPIC provides training and consulting for employers to educate themselves about ableism and learn how to successfully include individuals with disabilities in their workplaces.
Our programs are customizable and suitable for all. Whether you are a team of executives, managers, recruiters, or diversity professionals, EPIC can help you create a solid foundation for disability inclusion.
Our trainings cover topics like defining disability, examining ableism, inclusive practices, reasonable accommodations, and more.
Why include ableism & disability in DEI initiatives?
- People with disabilities make up 26% of the population, the largest minority group in the United States.
- However, the majority of DEI programs DO NOT include Disability and Ableism.
- This leads to bias and discrimination in the workplace and disabled employees not feeling safe to seek the supports necessary to thrive in their positions.
Everyone wins with disability inclusion!
Workplaces that embrace disability inclusion initiatives gain access to a talent pool of more than 10 million people, the largest untapped group of job seekers in the country. Additionally, inclusive working environments for disabled employees have a lower staff turnover rate, increased performance, and, on average, achieve higher revenues.
