Claiming Our Space

April 28, 2016 - noon - Ohio Union

Claiming Our Space in the Work Place: Narratives, Strategies, and Pathways to Success! ... As we continue to reflect on the historic 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act, the number of individuals who are employed continues to be low. There are even fewer individuals with disabilities represented in managerial and upper level leadership positions. As a means of closing the employment disparity gap, come join a conversation with members of the disability community who are employed at Ohio State and the Columbus area. Learn valuable strategies to navigate such issues as disclosure of a disability, selecting a workplace, bias, mentors, and pathways to success. This workshop will be facilitated by James Clinkscale, manager of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and coordinator for Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD). Come join us as we claim our space in employment!  Contact.
