Announcing Recent Enhancements to
NILG’s Website!

The NILG continues to improve its website and offer helpful resources to members.  To that end, the NILG has added an Advancing Disability Employment page below the Resources tab at the top of the main page.  This new page offers a variety of resources and tools to advance disability employment among ILG members, including links to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) on Disability Inclusion.

In addition, this page features a new toolkit for disability inclusion in the workplace and a section devoted to disability employment success stories among ILG members.  A direct result of our alliance with ODEP, The Disability Inclusion Toolkit addresses topics such as federal disability laws and accessibility and outlines a range of effective strategies that employers, including federal contractors and sub-contractors, can use to recruit, hire, retain, and advance skilled workers with disabilities. “Including people with disabilities in the workplace leads to innovation,” said ODEP’s Deputy Assistant Secretary Jennifer Sheehy.  “Together, NILG and ODEP are working to expand access to resources and information that foster an inclusive workforce and increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities.”

Please follow the link herein to this new resources page. http://www.nationalilg.org/resources/odep-news/.  If you have any questions or comments, please direct them to Kevin Carpenter  –kcarpent@wellsfargo.com .

As the NILG continues to provide disability inclusion resources to members through this alliance, we would like to hear from you regarding additional information and resources that would help you in your efforts to build a workplace where all workers succeed.  We can add these valuable resources to our page from which all members can enjoy the benefits.
