Celebrating ADA30: A Discussion on Youth Employment from the ADA Generation webinar, July 24 

The Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN) will host a webinar on “Celebrating ADA30: A Discussion on Youth Employment from the ADA Generation” on July 24 from 1 – 2 p.m. Eastern Time.  

During this webinar, young people with disabilities who grew up after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), known as the “ADA Generation,” will discuss their experiences in the workplace and offer ideas to help employers attract young people with disabilities. They will address policies and programs of particular interest to younger workers with disabilities; including internship, apprenticeship, and mentorship opportunities, and how to ensure they are accessible. They will also touch on how young people with disabilities view disability disclosure and self-identification.  

A representative from the Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire will review key findings of the “2020 Kessler Foundation National Employment and Disability Survey: Recent College Graduates.”
