Moomaw, Mesirow & Godfrey will sponsor Amplify’s Disability Workplace Inclusion event

We’re proud to be sponsoring the Disability Workplace Inclusion event by Amplify! for the second year in a row.

Amplify! is an initiative that encourages disability inclusiveness in the workplace. They strive to empower and equip employers to build their workforce and community by hiring people of all abilities, especially those who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Meaningful employment is fundamental for everyone, yet the employment rate of people with a work limitation has been steadily declining—just 13% as of 2014.

We value workforce diversity, and as attorneys who specialize in human resource issues, we want to help employers find the tools they need in order to employ folks from all walks of life.

The event, Disability Workplace Inclusion: What is Your Vision, will include inspirational speaker Karen Gaffney, professional development breakout sessions, a talk on inclusive workplaces, and success stories from local diversity and inclusion leaders.

We’re really looking forward to the event and encourage our friends and clients to attend! Register here: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07efhfaz3765af536c&llr=dvm8689ab.
