Johnson Space Center Disability Employment Awareness Month Program: “Working With People Who Are Not Like Me”

JSC Conflict Resolution and Disability Month_Oct 4 Event Flyer_FINAL_pdf…
Johnson Space Center (JSC) is hosting a presentation by Joe Bontke from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), who will address the following questions:

What’s in your backpack, and is any of it baggage? For today’s multi-cultural and multi-generational workforce to be effective, we all need to be prepared to engage in open communications. This event will identify effective strategies for cross-cultural communications at the workplace, for supporting employees with disability or health condition, and to utilize active listening for better understanding of needs and workplace issues.

Does unconscious bias, unspoken interactions and, ultimately, fear get in the way? This will get you thinking and maybe acting in a different way with people who are not like you.

JSC is streaming this event on Thursday, October 4 at (viewing from 8-9:30am PST / 9-10:30am MST / 10-11:30am CST /11am-12:30pm EST). This event is hosted by JSC Safety and Health Action Team, No Boundaries Employee Resource Group, and JSC Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity. There will be 2 ASL interpreters supporting the event at JSC. Their image will be inserted via the livestream video feed.
