Getting Hired and Moving Ahead in a Job with a Disability

People with disabilities continue to be employed or underemployed at astonishingly high rates. The gap in the employment rates of people with disabilities versus those without disabilities has changed little in the past three decades, and it appears it may be widening. This training will provide information about how individuals with disabilities can increase their chance of being hired and succeeding in employment. Participants will have an opportunity to hear success stories and to increase their knowledge of disability rights and legislation, including the implications of the ADA AA on employment.
