Breaking down barriers: Creating a thriving workplace for Employees with HIV What does your company do to create a safe, stigma-free environment for employees with HIV? With medical advancements, people with HIV are now living long, healthy lives and many will stay in the work force until retirement. However, many barriers such as fear of discrimination, lack of health insurance coverage and uncertain job stability may prevent people with HIV from approaching your company for employment. This workshop will help you identify the hidden barriers in your company and give you tools to make your workplace more accommodating. You will also hear first-hand stories that illustrate the challenges and successes of people living with HIV in the workplace. Join us to discover ways your company can create inclusivity and break down barriers: no hard hats required!
