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.
