Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On November 06, 2015 (EST)

This webcast will be held on Tuesday, November 9, 2015, 2:00 - 3:00 PM Eastern Time and is hosted by the Job Accommodation Network (JAN)in support of the U. S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP)

The vision of ODEP is “A world in which people with disabilities have unlimited employment opportunities.” The mission supporting this vision is “to develop and influence policies and practices that increase the number and quality of employment opportunities for people with disabilities.” ODEP operationalizes its mission through five technical assistance (TA) centers, as well as the Campaign for Disability Employment, the Workforce Recruitment Program, and disability.gov - the U.S. federal government website for information on disability programs and services nationwide. The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is one of the five ODEP TA Centers.

This webcast will provide participants with a glimpse into three of the ODEP technical assistance centers. These include the National Employer Policy, Research and Technical Assistance Center for Employers on the Employment of People with Disabilities; the National Center on Leadership for the Employment and Economic Advancement of People with Disabilities (LEAD Center); and the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT). Participants will learn from each of the Center’s their latest initiatives to support the inclusion of people with disabilities in the workforce.
