When employees are diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment or early onset dementia at work: Getting ahead of the curve
Date: September 29th, 2020 at 1:00 pm ET

Description:

As the workforce ages, there will be an exponential rise in the number of workers who develop mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or early onset dementia (EOD) while on the job. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities emphasizes that reasonable accommodation must be provided to individuals with disabilities such as MCI|EOD, so that they may be able to enjoy equal opportunity in the workplace. Dr. McMurray will provide a high-level summary of the Cog@Work team’s research into the science behind employers’ response to this “rising tide”, and the Canadian policy environment which guides them.

Speaker: Dr. Josephine McMurray, Associate Professor, Wilfrid Laurier University
