Webinar: Developing Inclusive Service Descriptions

The National Service Inclusion Project (NSIP) is pleased to announce our next web conference to be held on Wednesday, May 26th at 3:00pm EST. This webinar will discuss strategies and tips for creating an inclusive service description. Developing inclusive service position descriptions provide greater detail to potential service members or volunteers by communicating the key responsibilities of the service position clearly. After attending this webinar, you will learn how to describe and incorporate all of the key content areas into a service position so that you may communicate a clear, concise, and inclusive service description to potential service members and volunteers.

Specifically, we will discuss:
- The purpose for developing an inclusive service description
- The process for gathering information for the components of your inclusive service description
- Strategies for writing essential and marginal functions in a service description
- The components of an inclusive service description
