Disability in the American Workplace: Progress and Pitfalls

How far have people with disabilities come in having equal opportunity in employment? Where have there been successes? Where are there still barriers to equal opportunity? In this session, we will consider data on the economic and employment lives of people with disabilities, demographic trends related to disability, legislative and policy changes, the business case for disability inclusiveness in the workplace, and “hot button” issues in the application of the law to disability inclusiveness in the workplace.
