Another twitter chat celebrating National Disability Employment Awareness Month! On October 28 from 2:00-3:00pm ET, join the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for a discussion of the role of the federal government as a model employer of people with disabilities. EEOC Chair Jenny Yang and Commissioner Chai Feldblum will answer questions during the hour-long chat.

“We hope this Twitter Chat provides useful information about what the EEOC is doing to increase the employment of people with disabilities at all levels of federal service,” said EEOC Chair Yang. “The EEOC is committed to ensuring our nation’s workplaces are inclusive of all people without regard to disability, race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, or genetic information and family medical history, beginning with the federal workplace.”EEOC Twitter Chat Image

“As a long time devotee of Twitter, I am thrilled to have an interactive discussion about what the EEOC is doing, and what more it can do, to help people with disabilities find and retain good jobs in the federal government,” said Commissioner Feldblum.
