The state of Employment for people with disabilities: Opportunities and challenges

In September 2014, New York began its Employment First Initiative to promote the integration of New Yorker’s with disabilities into the workforce. This webinar will examine the employment disparity of people with disabilities, its negative effects, and how governmental action such as the Employment First Initiative can help to reverse the underemployment of working age people with disabilities. We will also look at how local disability agencies, like centers for independent living, have been a part of the Employment First Initiative and the progress of their efforts.
