    "Engaging the Untapped Workforce"


    In today’s society, the need for workers is great. As adulthood begins to factor in, so does the rate of acquiring a disability as one gets older, recent data suggests that most people living with a disability are within the working ages of 18-64.

    In this seminar, you will learn (1) the understanding of disabilities, (2) disability employment boosting the bottom line, (3) Recruiting top talent (with disabilities) and (4) Reasonable accommodations made easy.
