National Trends in Disability Employment (nTIDE) Launches New Lunch & Learn Webinar Series!

The Employment Policy & Measurement Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (EPM-RRTC) at the University of New Hampshire, in partnership with Kessler Foundation and the American Association of People with Disabilities, have launched a new monthly webinar series Lunch & Learn, in connection with the National Trends in Disability Employment report (nTIDE).

On the first Friday of every month, corresponding with the Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report, EPM-RRTC and its partners are offering a live broadcast via Zoom Webinar to share the results of the latest nTIDE findings.

nTIDE is a monthly report on employment data for Americans with Disabilities customized from the jobs report released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.  The nTIDE report focuses on working age men and women with disabilities (ages 16 to 64) and analyzes key indicators that reflect the employment environment of Americans with disabilities such as:

      • Labor Force Participation Rate – the rate of how many people are actively employed or looking for work compared to the total population
      • Employment-to-Population Ratio – the percentage of people who are working compared to the total population
      • Percent Looking – the percentage of individuals who are actively looking for work

On March 4th, 2016 EPM-RRTC and its partners soft-launched the Lunch & Learn webinar and recorded it for later access.  In addition to reporting the latest employment trends, the webinar series provides news and updates from the field of disability employment and includes various panelists to discuss current disability-related finding and events.  Check out the soft-launch at www.ResearchonDisability.org/nTIDE and join members of the disability, rehabilitation, and research community at the next nTIDE Lunch & Learn on Friday, April 1st, 2016 at 12 p.m. EST.

nTIDE is the result of a collaborative partnership between Employment Policy & Measurement Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (EPM-RRTC) at the University of New Hampshire, and the Kessler Foundation and is funded in part by grants through the National Institute on Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
