ePolicyWorks is a Web-based approach to policymaking that engages citizens and stakeholders in new and innovative ways. The initiative leverages the latest technology to address barriers to employment for people with disabilities and fosters real-time collaboration and communication around key issues.
Extended through Dec. 15, this online dialogue will promote new thinking around the employment and advancement of veterans, including disabled veterans, and to improve education efforts for employers regarding their responsibilities under federal employment laws.
This dialogue seeks to identify the resources that would prove most effective for people with disabilities pursuing education, training, and employment opportunities across all arts and culture disciplines, not only as artists but cultural workers as well.
On Oct. 20, ePolicyWorks hosted “Autonomous Vehicles: Driving Employment for People with Disabilities” on Twitter. See participants’ insights on transportation technologies such as autonomous vehicles (AV) and how they can best serve to increase workplace participation for the disability community.
