SBAM hosting MI Hidden Talent disability hiring workshop this fall
August 8, 2019
The Small Business Association of Michigan today announced it is presenting the MI Hidden Talent Workshop to help companies be intentional about hiring people with disabilities.
The free, one-day training seminar, provides resources, strategies and best practices for hiring and retaining Michiganders with disabilities. The event is open to small business owners, business leaders and HR leaders and will take place on Monday, October 28 at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing.
“People with disabilities have to show tremendous creativity, perseverance and determination to achieve what many people take for granted,” said SBAM President Brian Calley. “The MI Hidden Talent Workshop will provide small businesses with helpful strategies and resources to successfully add these talented and capable Michiganders to their workforce.”
The keynote speaker for this year’s workshop will be PNC’s Vice President of Human Resources and Accessibility Officer Greg Pollock. Greg leads PNC’s disability strategy and efforts to enhance inclusion at PNC. Pollock previously led diversity and inclusion efforts for the Dow Chemical Company.
SBAM is proud to have Delta Dental as the title sponsor of the 2019 MI Hidden Talent Workshop.
The MI Hidden Talent initiative was created in 2016 by Calley in partnership with Michigan Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein to help business owners intentionally hire Michiganders with disabilities.
