While both ergonomics and DEI are critical to today’s business, the session “Ergonomics & Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: One and the Same” in our upcoming VelocityEHS Accelerate User Conference will explain how these two subjects are deeply connected.

The one-hour session at 9 a.m. CST on Thursday, May 18, will look at how ergonomics (designing the workplace to match human performance capabilities) and DEI (a conceptual framework that seeks to promote the fair treatment and full participation of all people, especially in the workplace) naturally work together to support employee wellness.

Certified Professional Ergonomist and VelocityEHS Solutions Executive, Blake McGowan, will lead the discussion on how ergonomics fundamentally aligns with DEI, as it designs for both males and females of all generations, shapes and sizes, etc. By creating workspaces that fit everyone, an organization shows that it is equitable and inclusive to its diverse workforce, giving all employees a sense of belonging.

Full attendance of this session fulfills the requirement for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and will no doubt change the way you see ergonomics and DEI moving forward.
