Pathways to Inclusion
Want to help your workplace better accommodate those with special needs?
Doing so requires more than just policies, says John McGill of the high-IQ society American Mensa.
“I think inclusion and diversity comes much more through an organization’s cultural foundation and a company’s DNA than a pure focus, while important, exclusively on policy or tools,” he said.
McGill, director of strategic partnerships for Mensa, will be among the featured panelists when Bryan’s House hosts the Pathways to Inclusion Luncheon, Awards, and Special Needs Summit from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Belo Mansion.
Attendees will enjoy lunch, a raffle, and an emcee-led discussion with thought leaders using their companies’ technology, artificial intelligence, and accessibility to increase diversity and inclusion for those with special needs in the workplace.
