Building an Inclusive Business
Inclusion Strategies and Planning for Your Business
98 per cent of all businesses in British Columbia are small businesses. With such large representation in our province, these businesses have a crucial leadership role to play in providing equal access to opportunities and resources for those who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those with physical or mental disabilities. While most business owners would welcome this responsibility, they don’t know how or where to start.
Inclusivity is an important way to attract customers, investors, and prospective employees. Join Yat Li from the Presidents Group as we engage a panel of speakers to break down key steps and best practices to building an inclusive company. You’ll leave with concrete ideas and quick wins to get started, plus resources and support for continuing the journey.
As a bonus, registrants will also receive free access to an e-course created by the Presidents Group titled, Take Action on Accessibility: Develop Your Accessibility Action Plan.
