State as Model Employer

National Disability Employment Month (NDEAM) Webinar Series
Tuesday, October 18, 2022
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Eastern time
Host: Advancing Employment / University of Georgia
Speaker(s) Doug Crandell, MFA, Advancing Employment Director and Rikki David, Louisiana State ADA Coordinator’s Office

How can a state influence the employment rates of people with disabilities? The answer is simple: through leading by example! This session will review the State as Model Employer (SAME) efforts in other states, focusing on how state agencies, not just those related to disability, can accommodate, customize, and prioritize employment initiatives that are inclusive of disability. We will review and discuss the one-pager related to SAME and lay out the plans for a focus group to take place during the Carter Center event on October 27th. Attendees will receive materials that can be used in advocating for SAME in Georgia.
