Beyond Yellow Ribbons: Workplace Disability Inclusiveness for Veterans with Disabilities
Recently, there has been a surge of goodwill among employers to “do the right thing” in employing veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. While this goodwill is laudable, we must pose a question. Will this goodwill be enough? To a large degree, veterans’ workplace issues are disability workplace issues. During this webinar, we will explore the findings of two studies on workplace issues for returning veterans with disabilities recently conducted by the Cornell Northeast ADA Center (DBTAC) in collaboration with the National ADA Network, the National SHRM organization, the Kessler Foundation. Both studies focus on knowledge, beliefs/expectations and behaviors/practices around workplace disability inclusiveness for veterans. One of these studies examines employers; the other study centers on veterans themselves. This webinar would be ideally suited for HR professionals, business leaders, VR professionals, disability advocates, military professionals, and service providers.
