A strong federal workforce is an inclusive federal workforce – one that welcomes the skills and talents of all qualified individuals. Reflecting this, the Federal Government has taken steps over the years to increase the representation of qualified people with disabilities in its workforce and to be a model employer of people with disabilities.

To provide updates on recent efforts to strengthen disability inclusion in the federal workforce, EARN and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are co-hosting a Twitter chat with EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum and Dexter Brooks, Associate Director, Office of Federal Operations. EARN is the Employer Assistance Resource Network on Disability Inclusion.

The chat will discuss recent updates to Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act and other important topics related to the recruitment, hiring, advancement and retention of people with disabilities in the federal workforce.

Use hashtag #FedInclusion to join the discussion and let us know what your agency is doing to promote disability inclusion. People with disabilities, disability advocates, federal agency HR specialists, disability program managers, selective placement program coordinators, reasonable accommodation coordinators, EO specialists and others are encouraged to participate.
