Mark your calendars! In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, join the ADA National Network and regional ADA Centers for a 1-hour Twitter Chat on Employment and the ADA.
What is a Twitter Chat?
Great question! Our Twitter Chats are hour-long question and answer sessions held on Twitter. You can tune in for all or some of the chat. We have everything from specific trivia, to open-ended questions and polls.
These chats are a great opportunity to connect with other individuals, organizations, and groups in the disability community and get information about common ADA questions. Each month will highlight a different topic related to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
