Webinar: The Importance of Including and Supporting Individuals with Disabilities in America’s Workforce
Tuesday, October 12 at 3:00 - 4:30 pm Register for the webinar. The ACL-funded Disability Employment Technical Assistance Center is hosting a webinar to celebrate the importance of including people with disabilities in the nation's workforce during National Disability Employment Awareness Month. The webinar will highlight the contributions of individuals with disabilities by demonstrating how a Center for Independent Living in a rural area and Council on Developmental Disabilities has paved the way to advance competitive, integrated employment (CIE) for people with disabilities. Additionally, we will learn about a self-advocate's journey to competitive, integrated employment, and how they contribute to an employer through having a 'can-do' attitude and hard work ethic. Presenters:
Michael Leyva, Contracts/Grants Coordinator, Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council
Sierra Royster, Youth Programs Coordinator, Association of Rural Independent Living
Sarah Bair, Youth Transition Coordinator, Central Washington Disability Resources
In addition to the webinar, Office Hours will be held on October 15 from 12:00 - 1:30 pm ET.
