Employer Training

Work Together NC has developed a no-cost training and recognition program for employers interested in transforming their workforce through hiring people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). 

Employer Training Module

The online course will provide a brief introduction to IDD and guide you through several key topics related to IDD in the workplace, such as:

  • Introduction to IDD Inclusion in the Workplace
  • Language, Misconceptions, and Mindset Shifts
  • Universal Design
  • Tools for People with IDD in the Workplace
  • Allyship in the Workplace
  • Success Stories, Community Resources, and Next Steps

The course is completely self paced and should take no longer than 2 hours (or 2 lunch breaks!) to complete.
