Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 1:00pm – 2:00pm EST

1-2 p.m. ET/ 10-11 a.m. PT/ 20:00-21:00 Israel

Join us for an exclusive presentation and facilitated discussion as we dive into the results of three major new studies on Jewish disability inclusion in the workforce. We will discuss:

  • Successful models from Jewish human service agencies for increasing employment for people with disabilities;¬†
  • What Leading Edge has learned about¬†Jews and others with¬†disabilities who¬†work at Jewish organizations and where progress has been made;
  • Findings from RespectAbility's¬†major study on the inclusion of Jews with disabilities inside Jewish groups;
  • Big picture takeaways on where we go from here so that Jews and others with disabilities can thrive both inside and out of Jewish institutions.¬†

This presentation will be live-captioned, and there will be an American Sign Language interpreter present as well.
