ODEP asks you to share your ideas, individual stories, and personal experiences illustrating the impact of Section 14(c) on the employment of people with disabilities. […]
Three main topics within the dialogue are:
- Use of Section 14(c) and observed trends
- Experiences transitioning from the use of Section 14(c) certificates
- Vision for the future of work and workplaces; the landscape over the next five to ten years
This online event is open to the general public. ODEP strongly encourages people with disabilities, their families, providers, disability organizations, employers, researchers, and other stakeholders who have experience with, or opinions about, Section 14(c) to share their perspectives and ideas for the future. INPUT IS DUE BY JUNE 14, 2019.”
