EARN Webinar — Do Ask, Do Tell: Tapping the Power of Disability Diversity & Encouraging Self-Identification

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On January 22, 2016 (EST)

This webinar is sponsored by Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) and will be held on Thursday, February 18, from 3:00-4:30 PM ET.

In recent years, corporate America has undergone significant shifts in how it talks about disability and employment, with leading companies now actively incorporating it into their workforce diversity and inclusion goals. In 2014, updates to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act added further impetus to these shifts by strengthening federal contractors' responsibilities to take affirmative action to recruit and retain qualified people with disabilities. One major component of these updates is the requirement that federal contractors invite applicants and employees to voluntarily self-identify as people with disabilities.

This webinar will address strategies for achieving disability inclusion goals by encouraging employees to understand the value of self-identifying. It is targeted at federal contractors and other companies interested in fostering a disability-inclusive work culture.
