Employee Accessibility Network

Inspired by the community building efforts of McMaster students with disabilities, and in response to provincial accessibility legislation, the Equity and Inclusion Office invites staff and faculty who personally identify with disability-related issues to join the already-established Employee Accessibility Network!

The Employee Accessibility Network (EAN) was formed in response to provincial accessibility legislation. Meetings are hosted monthly by the Equity and Inclusion Office on McMaster’s main campus (with a phone-in option).

Who can attend? 

  • McMaster employees (e.g., TAs, RAs, student employees, etc.)
  • Individuals who identify with disability-related issues (e.g., experience disability, disablement, chronic illness, and/or a health, mental health or addiction concern)
  • Those who want to learn more about workplace accessibility and accommodations
  • Those who are interested in meeting confidentially with other employees with disabilities to share information and offer suggestions for enhancing accessibility at McMaster

What do we do?

Most meetings include a mix of peer support, consultation, and strategizing related to:

  • workplace accommodations
  • employment equity
  • career advancement
  • accessibility in the workplace (e.g., work schedules, parking)
  • negotiating disability/disclosure at work
  • policy-related discussions
  • other topics introduced by members!

Get in touch (confidentially)!
