This session highlights available resources and practical strategies for attracting, hiring and retaining individuals with disabilities and veterans with disabilities. 

Two recently revised regulations represent an historic advance in employment rights for disabled veterans and individuals with disabilities. By strengthening longstanding regulations under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, the new rules ensure that qualified applicants and workers have more meaningful opportunities to find, secure and keep good jobs. Colet Mitchell and Shaun McGill will discuss best practices around workplace culture, outreach, recruitment and retention for people with disabilities, including veterans with disabilities and pair with resources and tools.
