ACCESSIBILITY IN THE WORKPLACE


"Part of putting People First at Ryerson is creating an environment in which all employees have the opportunity to excel. Weaving accessibility into all that we do lets our faculty and staff know they will be able to succeed in a barrier-free environment. This is about more than implementing strategies and policies. It’s about endeavouring continuously and intentionally to identify both the obvious and the hidden barriers. This will not only help current employees, but also support us in our active recruitment of persons with disabilities to ensure that our faculty and staff reflect the community they serve. At the end of the day, it's about working now to build a legacy of accessibility for the years to come." - Christina Sass-Kortsak, Assistant Vice-President, Human Resources
