Technology and Work: Improving Employment Outcomes for People with Disabilities

This webcast is free of charge and will be closed captioned.

This webcast will focus on the potential role of technology to enhance employment for people with disabilities in two ways - job and career path opportunities, and the creation of technology-based tools for facilitating productivity in select job tasks, including access to workplace communication channels.

Representatives from Cornell University, private and government organizations in the technology sector, and related global non-governmental organizations will discuss initiatives to increase employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities in the technology sector, and to increase technology accommodation innovations affording access to the workplace.

The program will be hosted by Susanne Bruyère, director of ILR's K. Lisa Yang and Hock E. Tan Institute on Employment and Disability, and Linda Barrington, the ILR School's associate dean for outreach and sponsored research.
