The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs will host a disability underemployment symposium in Seattle next week (August 6 & 7). DePaul Industries’ CEO Dave Shaffer will be making a presentation on both days on Establishing a Workplace Culture of Accessibility — which, of course, means you have two opportunities to catch the presentation! Dave will share insight and experiences to help employers identify the impact that their workplace culture has on employees with disabilities, and unique ways to address potential issues.
The FREE event is chock-full of informative presentations highlighting and addressing the barriers that keep individuals with disabilities from reaching their full potential in the workplace. Panelists will discuss topics such as overcoming barriers to successful employment, general rights of employees with disabilities, disability disclosure, etiquette, culture of accessibility, reasonable accommodations and workplace design, benefits of disability employment, assistive technologies and online accessibility.
