Posted by Susan Famulare - On June 27, 2011 (EST)

Knowledge workers who have specialized skills, especially in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), will fill many of the fastest-growing jobs in America. In the population of youth ages 15 to 24, 11 percent of individuals have disabilities. However, in the STEM workforce, only 5 percent of individuals have disabilities. Listen to this podcast to learn more about programs that promote STEM learning opportunities for students with disabilities, including AccessSTEM, a very extensive E-mentoring community that helps students develop job-search and interview strategies, and ENTRY POINT, a 10-to-12 week summer internship experience for college students with disabilities.
