Cultivate Ability offers webinar

Cultivate Ability will co-host a free webinar from 10 to 11 a.m. May 5 for human resources professionals and employers on accommodating employees with mental health impairments. The guest speaker will be Melanie Whetzel of the Job Accommodation Network.

“Knowing how, when, and why it might be necessary to disclose a disability is the first and often most difficult part of the accommodation process,” the invitation reads. “This session will provide information on the disclosure of mental health impairments in the workplace, the limitations associated with these impairments and the accommodations that might be needed.”

Cultivate Ability is hosting the session with Disability: IN Uinta County as part of a speaker series on advancing disability inclusion. To register go to Email or call 307-200-3423 with any questions or for information about Cultivate Ability’s programs.
