Creating Inclusive Virtual Apprenticeship Programs and More Accessible Workplaces
Tuesday – January 31, 2023
2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. [Eastern Time]
Host: Southeast ADA Center, Great Lakes ADA Center, and ADA National Network
How can employers expand their access to diverse talent while also developing more inclusive workplaces? Speakers from the Partnership on Inclusive Apprenticeship and the Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology will discuss how creating apprenticeship programs and implementing accessible recruiting practices can do just that. Apprenticeships can help employers find, train, and retain employees from untapped talent pools, including individuals with disabilities. But, in order to be successful, these programs and the organizations that lead them, must be designed to be inclusive and accessible, both virtually and in-person. When apprenticeship program leaders and employers prioritize inclusion and accessibility, they also advance their diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) goals and are able to attract other under-served workers across the board.
Continuing education recognition available: 1.5 credit hours for Certificate of Attendance and ACTCP (ADA Coordinator Training Certificate Program).
