Disability Inclusive Employment Policy
Welcome to the twelfth issue of the Disability Inclusive Employment Policy RRTC Newsletter. In this issue we introduce the fourth Season of the Reimagining Disability-Inclusive Employment Policy podcast series focusing on Long COVID and provide updates on relevant legislative and regulatory developments.
Today’s unprecedented health, social, and economic challenges raised by the coronavirus pandemic require a retrospective, present-day, and prospective view of U.S. employment policy for individuals with disabilities. Over the two remaining years of the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on “Disability Inclusive Employment Policy” (DIEP), we will continue to implement a series of studies that produce new data and evidence on policy levers to increase employment rates of persons with disabilities with the objective of informing current and future policy and program development. This project is a collaboration between Syracuse, Harvard, and Rutgers universities.
Invite others to receive this quarterly FREE newsletter to stay updated on the latest employment policy research related to advancing economic stability, and security for youth and adults with disabilities.
