A New Day: We're Listening

 
Registration
 

In early 2010, the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and its Federal partners held a series of six Listening Sessions across the country on disability employment. Each Listening Session was an opportunity for members of the public to provide input to senior Federal officials on their ideas for more effective ways to employ all people with disabilities, including women, Veterans and minorities with disabilities and what was currently working in their regions to increase employment of people with disabilities.

ODEP sought input particularly from:

  • Individuals & Consumers: youth and adults with disabilities, parents and caregivers.
  • Employers: public and private
  • Service Providers & Advocacy Organizations (such as Employment Services and Partners): Independent Living Centers, One-Stops, State Vocational Rehabilitation Programs.

Our Partners Included:

  • U.S. Social Security Administration
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • U.S. Department of Education
  • DOL Employment Training Administration
  • DOL Veterans' Employment and Training Service
  • DOL Women's Bureau
  • U.S. Office of Personnel Management
  • Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
