Inviting employees with disabilities!

Inspired by the community building efforts of McMaster students with disabilities, and in response to provincial accessibility legislation, the Equity and Inclusion Office invites staff and faculty who personally identify with disability-related issues to join the already-established Employee Accessibility Network!

Employee Accessibility Network

 

  • Do you work at any McMaster campus? e.g., as staff, faculty, TAs/RAs, student employees?

  • Do you personally identify with disability-related issues? e.g., experience disability, disablement, chronic illness, and/or a health, mental health or addiction concern?

  • Do you have questions or concerns about workplace accessibility?

  • Are you interested in meeting confidentially with other employees with disabilities to share information and offer suggestions for enhancing accessibility at McMaster?

We invite you to join monthly meetings of the Employee Accessibility Network!

The Employee Accessibility Network was formed in response to provincial accessibility legislation. Meetings are hosted by the Equity and Inclusion Office on McMaster’s main campus (with a phone-in option).

What do we talk about?

Most meetings include a mix of peer support, consultation, and strategizing related to:

  • workplace accommodations
  • employment equity
  • career advancement
  • accessibility in the workplace (e.g., work schedules, parking)
  • negotiating disability/disclosure at work
  • policy-related discussions
  • other topics introduced by members!

Get in touch (confidentially)!
