YWCA Project

The University of Lethbridge IME class is excited to be given the opportunity to work with the YWCA Lethbridge & District - a local non-profit within the community. After meeting with Kristine Kassie, CEO of the organization, our class has been tasked with developing a Policy and Procedures handbook to handle the issue of ‘Duty of Accommodate’. Specifically, management is looking for us to help create a process chart in order to simplify the steps that need to be taken when dealing with accommodation issues within the workplace. Additionally, they are looking for help in communicating with physicians in order to better understand what activities a person can do based on the physical demands of their job. This project has been designed as a live case that each of the groups within IME have an opportunity to develop a solution that they will present to the class and Kristine. We are looking forward to applying our existing knowledge into a real-life situation with the hopes of implementing this into the YWCA!
