Campaign for Disability Employment to Host Twitter Chat on Youth with Disabilities
On Thursday, July 28 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET, the Campaign for Disability Employment is hosting its first Twitter chat on advancing the employment prospects of youth and young adults with disabilities. Held in honor of the 26th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the chat will serve as a prelude to this October’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) by highlighting why “inclusion works” for the current generation of youth with disabilities who are either transitioning to or just starting out in the workforce. The chat will explore what today’s post-ADA generation of youth with disabilities see as key to their workplace success—and the ways in which employers can support them. To participate in the Twitter chat, use the hashtag #CDEYouth.
