Employers: What Can We Do? Join the Conversation for Change on September 9-11, 2013
Help shape federal strategies for helping employers creating a diverse workforce that includes people with disabilities. Employers and other interested stakeholders are invited to participate in an online Employer Dialogue being sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). The dialogue will be centered around the main question, “What services do you need to facilitate the hiring, retention and advancement of people with disabilities?” Employers, human resource and diversity professionals, and all others with expertise and insight into disability employment issues are encouraged to participate in the Employer Dialogue by submitting ideas and comments and/or voting on others’ ideas and comments. Submissions will be accepted 24 hours a day, using an online crowdsourcing tool. Together, these contributions will help inform ODEP’s work going forward. The Employer Dialogue is being facilitated through ODEP’s ePolicyWorks initiative and will be moderated by ODEP’s Employer Policy team.
