What Career Placement and Accessibility Professionals Need to Know

As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ADA, dramatic changes are taking place in the employment landscape for people with disabilities thanks to new federal regulations. Come learn from disability employment expert Dr. Sarah Helm how companies are addressing new federal hiring guidelines, and how colleges and universities can prepare students to succeed.

Dr. Helm is the Project Manager for EEO &Diversity at Discover Financial Services and previously worked for Career Opportunities for Students with Disabilities (COSD) at the University of Tennessee. She will provide an overview of the impact of Section 503 new guidelines on higher education. Experts from the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, Health & Disabilities Advocates and Mercy Worldwide will join us for this discussion.
