ODEP’s Campaign for Disability Employment Policy Twitter Chat – Working Together: How Businesses Can Support Career Success for Youth with Disabilities

Join the Campaign for Disability Employment on Thursday, July 28 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern for a Twitter chat on “How Businesses Can Support Career Success for Youth with Disabilities.” Held in honor of the 26th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the chat will serve as a prelude to this October’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) by highlighting why “inclusion works” for the current generation of youth and young adults with disabilities who are either transitioning to or just starting out in the workforce. The chat will explore what today’s post-ADA generation of youth with disabilities see as key to their workplace success—and the important role that employers can play in helping them achieve it. To participate in this important Twitter conversation, please use the hashtag #CDEYouth.
