Event description
In honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month, this Key FEDTalks features panelists discussing Workplace Culture and Disability Rights.

About this Event

The passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in July 1990 made discrimination against those with disabilities illegal in the United States, enacting similar provisions applied in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, including requiring public spaces be accessible for those with disabilities, reasonable accommodations from employers and equity in the hiring process. However, as its 30th Anniversary approaches in the summer of 2020, there is still room for improvement in terms of accessibility, inclusion and equity for those with disabilities.

In honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month, this Key FEDTalks - Workplace Culture & Disability Rights - will feature a panel of experts in the field to enhance awareness, provide key tools and new thought processes for those in attendance to apply professionally and personally.

Moderated by Dr. Zina Sutch, Deputy Associate Director, Outreach, Diversity & Inclusion, Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the panel consists of Dr. Filippo Trevisan, Assistant Professor, American University School of Communication & Deputy Director, Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP), Debra Vey Voda-Hamilton, Principal Attorney & Mediator, Hamilton Law & Mediation, Gary Norman, Esq. L.L.M. Chair at the Md. Commission on Civil Rights, Washington College of Law Alumnus and Presidential Management Fellowship Alumnus and Natalie Veeney, Diversity Program Manager, Outreach, Diversity and Inclusion Center of Employee Services, Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
