About This Session

New regulations require that government contractors ask U.S. job applicants and employees to self-identify if they have a disability. However, employers are still struggling with building an inclusive environment where people feel comfortable answering “yes” to this question. Join this panel of disability experts as they help employers:

• Learn proven strategies for recruiting, hiring, retaining and advancing qualified employees with disabilities

• Identify ways to encourage employees with disabilities to self-identify, as many government contractors are required to do

• Discover EAST—a research-based methodology for affecting culture change in your organization
