A Closer Look: Guidance for Business and Employers Considering the Needs of People with Disabilities during COVID-19

February 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A Closer Look: Guidance for Businesses and Employers Considering the Needs of People with Disabilities during COVID-19

As businesses continue to operate and/or reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many questions about how businesses can safely operate. The business model for many firms has been modified according to CDC guidance.

In this new way of conducting business, a key concern is how to also meet the needs of employees with disabilities that may be at higher risk as well as customers with disabilities. Join us for a panel discussion with disability leaders, business owners, consultants, and professionals as we explore issues and share strategies, solutions, and resources.
