Online Courses & Facilitated Seminars

Online Courses for Professional Development augment your organization’s L&D department. Topical knowledge about the disability side of DEI is often lagging behind the other DEI initiatives. Why? Well, for one thing, over 80 percent of all disabilities are non-apparent, and if people don’t disclose or request an accommodation, many leaders and managers do not know that they need to take inclusive actions. Additionally, the disability accommodation requirement requires specific expertise in the area of ADA, accommodation, Assistive Technology, WGAC, and Digitally inclusive ICT applications and products.

Sierra’s online courses are the answer to this learning and development need and Facilitated Seminars can deepen your team’s understanding of how their day to day communications and meeting practices can be more inclusive of those with disabilities.

Understanding the subtle yet large difference between the Voluntary Self-Id of disability, and the request for a reasonable accommodation (self-disclosure) is another sought out Seminar. Attendees learn to look for opportunities to provide accommodations and track and promote their inclusive best practices.

DisabilityEtiquette© for Everyone is a must for anyone who is in the working world interacting with other people. In a little less than an hour - the time it takes to complete this online course - I learned so much with regard to talking with and about people with disabilities, in spite of my more than 30 years in the HR profession.
