Reaching Employers about Disability Inclusiveness: The Just-in-Time Program
More than 25 years after the passing of the ADA, people with disabilities still face barriers and discrimination in employment. One key to bringing about change lies in creating more powerful approaches to reaching employers. The Just-in-Time (JIT) Program is based on the idea that we need to reach those key players who are most likely to make decisions that impact the employment lives of people with disabilities: Managers and supervisors. During this session, we will review research on employment discrimination, provide an overview of the JIT Program and discuss our evaluation findings.
