Add Us In is a new initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). The initiative is designed to identify and develop strategies to increase employment opportunities within the small business community for individuals with disabilities. Included within the small business community are targeted businesses that are owned and operated by minorities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals; women; veterans; and people with disabilities.
On August 4th, 2011 ODEP is sponsoring the Add Us In National Diversity Forum at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The meeting will initiate a national discussion around how efforts like Add Us In can look at the intersection of business, diversity and disability in order to bring benefit to individuals with disabilities, small businesses, targeted communities and the economy as a whole. Space is limited — early registration is encouraged.
