A Global Perspective
ITCILO teamed up with Cornell University to create a course on disability in the workplace. In this interactive video-based course, employers, experts and persons with disabilities themselves share their latest insights, knowledge and experiences to enable you to identify the competitive advantage of including people with disabilities in your workforce, to create a business case, and to plan, implement and audit your disability inclusion strategy.
Acquiring know and know-how: gain necessary concepts and terminology, but also hands-on knowledge that you can put to practical use
Busting myths and misconceptions: train yourself to spot bias and stereotypical thinking about disabilities
Exploring law and practice: understand what international law says as well as what the best practices are towards effective application
