Episode two offers learnings on creating an inclusive environment for the physically disabled community
Arlington, Va., November 17, 2022 – Eagle Hill Consulting has released the latest episode of its podcast, cultur[ED], which helps leaders create organizational cultures that drive business performance. Episode Two features two guests from Dance For All Bodies, a nonprofit that addresses the limited availability of dance classes accessible to the disability community.
During the podcast, co-founders Yağmur Halezeroğlu and Tess Hanson discuss their journey to establish an innovative organization and how they learned to meet the needs of the disabled community even though they do not have physical disabilities. They also shared how Dance For All Bodies works with small and large corporations to deliver inclusive “dance break” classes for employees.
“Yağmur and Tess offer key insight for leaders who are working to shape a workplace where employees feel accepted, valued, and willing to bring their whole self to their job,” says Melissa Jezior, the host of culture[ED] and CEO of Eagle Hill Consulting. “We learned that there are so many aspects to creating inclusive spaces – considering transportation issues, researching and understanding the needs of differing communities, and giving leadership roles to others. Yağmur and Tess clearly have put in the work to create a robustly inclusive space for their dancers.”
