The ILR Online webcast series 2014-15 lineup will feature programs with a “past, present and future” theme, to align with Cornell University’s 150th anniversary and the ILR School’s 70th anniversary in 2015.
The October program will focus on employment and disability to coincide with National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Academic, policy and advocacy experts will share historical perspectives, discuss current initiatives and the state of employment for people with disabilities today, and examine issues that need to be addressed to support full workplace inclusion of people with disabilities in the future.
