Online Dialogue on Disability
What can state governments do to encourage the hiring, retention and advancement of workers with disabilities? That question is at the heart of an online conversation taking place between Aug. 4 and 18. “State governments can play a critical role when it comes to increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities,” said Kathy Martinez, assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy. ODEP invites state government disability employment professionals, state human resource and diversity professionals, and others with insight into disability employment issues to participate in the dialogue. Participants are encouraged to share new or innovative approaches to employing individuals with disabilities and comment or vote on posts.
Thank you for posting this announcement, Donna. It sounds quite interesting.
