About This Session
Technology has had a tremendous impact on the way we live and work, and has optimized and accelerated workplace productivity. For individuals with disabilities, assistive technology has opened up opportunities and areas for career advancements and worked to break down the barriers that previously existed in the workplace. Join this session to learn how assistive technology is impacting federal contractors and helping them comply with Section 503 requirements. This session will explore how, for example, technology is assisting employers from industries such as logistics, finance and more to reach individuals with disabilities. The discussion will also include new and upcoming technology, how partnerships have helped expand disability outreach initiatives and recruitment strategies geared toward individuals with disabilities.
