Accommodations requests at a glance

how we support

We launched our self-service online request system ACCOMMODATE in June 2015, which provides accommodations for People With Disabilities. We are committed to providing accommodations for disabilities and a range of other needs including religious, dietary, new mother, caregiver, transition assistance and travel. For example, our Employee Resource Group VOICE (Victory Over Impairment and Challenge Enterprise) helped pilot a software solution for lactation room reservations, accessibility and utilization.
