October - National Disability Employee Awareness Month
To raise awareness about disabilities in the workplace, Elizabeth Weathers, CIPP/US, LPEC, Head of Human Resources at MoneyGram, spoke with David Quilleon and Jack Mayor of Best Buddies International, a nonprofit focused on the integration of individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The conversation offered personal perspectives as well as more insight about the unique abilities each individual brings to work. They spoke about the importance of nurturing a safe environment for all people and creating the proper accommodations, reducing stigma, and adopting new strategies to promote disability inclusion. Additionally, MoneyGram made a gift to Best Buddies International in honor of our guests.
