INCLUSION & DIVERSITY


Persons with disabilities

We focus on enablement, offering an inclusive, equitable work environment.

Overview

 

We are committed to creating and providing an inclusive, open and equitable environment for individuals with different backgrounds, lifestyles, needs and expectations to be successful. To build awareness and understanding of issues faced by persons with disabilities, we sponsor networking, training and information sharing.

We also encourage the provision of reasonable accommodations—modifications or adjustments to a job or the work environment to assure that a qualified individual with a disability has rights and privileges in employment equal to those of employees without disabilities—to create an adaptable work environment. To help our people with disabilities employees obtain the accommodation they need to do their jobs, we recently developed a tool that allows people to request assistive technology online for themselves or on behalf of a colleague.
