The Human Resources Workplace Health and Wellbeing unit is pleased to announce UBC’s Centre for Workplace Accessibility will expand to include UBC Okanagan as of December 1.
In April 2022, Human Resources launched the Centre for Workplace Accessibility (CWA) at UBC Vancouver. This initiative was informed by UBC’s Inclusion Action Plan in consultation with community members and employment equity data.
The CWA is a central hub for resources, tools and programs that help remove barriers for faculty and staff with disabilities. The CWA also manages UBC’s centralized Workplace Accommodations Fund (WAF). The goal of this fund is to reduce any legitimate or perceived financial barriers that departments may encounter when accommodating a faculty or staff member.
