Accessibility Month with Small Business BC
September marks Disability Employment Month in BC, and SBCC is celebrating with Accessibility Month!
All month long, our Presidents Group member is offering free access to business education for the entire community – regardless of disability status.
All of their webinars will be accompanied by live ASL interpretation and closed captioning during this time.
Webinar: Building an Inclusive Business
On Wednesday, September 21, Yat Li from Presidents Group will host a panel of small business owners to discuss inclusion strategies and planning for your business.
98 per cent of all businesses in BC 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, many don’t know how or where to get started.
What Will You Learn?
- Key steps and quick wins to create an inclusivity strategy and plan.
- Resources and next steps to build an inclusive business.
- Benefits of fostering a culture in which staff feel safe to disclose a disability.
