Inclusion Confusion: What is the SELF-ID Form and Why is it Important?

Event Date/Time: 

Thursday, May 21st, 2020
2:00 PM EDT - 3:00 PM EDT




An estimated 34.2 million US citizens have a disability, yet only 26% of people with a disability are known to be in the workforce. These statistics could change due to movements for inclusion and technology advancements.  However, stigma persists regarding asking and answering the question – do you have a disability?  This Webinar looks at differences between Self-ID and self-disclosure and sheds new light on how this sensitive question makes people act and feel.

Learning Objectives

  1. The Difference between Self-ID and Self Disclosure – how to avoid the Inclusion Confusion
  2. Why the Self ID Question is asked, how that information is tracked, stored and utilized
  3. How do people with disabilities and their service providers FEEL about the request to Self-ID
  4. What can be done to make everyone more knowledgeable and more comfortable about this topic
