Twenty-four years of the ADA: Progress, Pitfalls and Possibilities

 The ADA was passed 24 years ago amidst a great hope that this bold new legislation would remove barriers to equal opportunity and access for people with disabilities across several life spheres.  In what areas have we made progress over the last 24 years?  In what areas do we still have work to do?  What possibilities do new policies and legislative changes bring?  In this session, we will draw from several sources to reflect upon our progress toward the goal of equal opportunity and access.  We will focus on several life spheres for people with disabilities, including economic life, employment, physical and program access, education, and health and safety.

The ADA and Beyond: Disability Inclusive Workplace Practices

New regulations and changes in the law now recognize employees with disabilities as a significant diversity population. An estimated 20 percent of employers in the U.S. will be directly impacted by these changes, and many companies are adopting new policies and procedures concerning employees with disabilities. Beyond legal issues, however, is a business issue. People with disabilities are an untapped source of talent—talent that has been shown to perform as well as others and to enable businesses to be more effective in reaching the full range of their potential markets.  In this session, there will be a brief summary of the new regulations; information on hiring and accommodating; and best practices for leaders on building a culture of inclusion.

Accessible Event Planning: Legal, Human and Practical issues

 Whether you are hosting a small, indoor meeting for a group of employees or a large outdoor event open to the entire public, it is important to plan and create an experience that allows everyone the opportunity fully to engage and participate. This includes your employees, peers, customers, and community members who have physical, sensory, psychiatric, environmental, and cognitive disabilities.  Through this online webinar, we will address how to plan an accessible event from beginning to end.  We will review what the ADA says about accessibility and discuss how to practically apply that to your event planning strategies. This presentation would be beneficial for anyone who engages in planning meetings or events of any kind.
