Accessibility in Lab | Accessibility in the Workforce with Logan Gin, Ph.D.
Welcome to the second part of our series on Accessibility in the Lab. Each episode explores the importance of accessibility in the lab, academia, the workforce and other applications.
In our first episode, we discussed accessibility in education to get a perspective on the accommodations and resources available for students. For this episode, we're exploring what accessibility looks like outside of education – the workforce – to understand how accessibility affects working professionals. Our guest joining us to share his unique perspective is Logan Gin, Ph.D., who is the assistant director of STEM education, at the Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning at Brown University.
Key Learning Points:
- What accessibility looks like for
- The best practices used in hiring to be more inclusive to all disabilities
- What is considered a "reasonable accommodation" per ADA compliance
- How accessibility in the workforce compares to education
