This free webinar, from the Employer Assistance and Resource Network, will provide strategies learned through eight nationwide consortia to increase the capacity of small businesses to employ people with disabilities. Participants will hear from small businesses about their experiences and learn about a new online resource to help them take action.

The network is funded through the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy in cooperation with The Viscardi Center. The Viscardi Center provides programs that educate, employ, and empower children and adults with disabilities.

Television with captions.
All TVs since the 1990’s have been built with the capacity to provide captions. Enabling captions on workplace TVs enables Deaf and Hard of Hearing employees to read what’s being said, and also allows staff to watch TV during breaks without disturbing others.

Registration is required for the  free “Small Business & Disability Employment: Steps to Success” webinar on Dec. 8, 1:00-2:00 Central Time.
