Sponsors of Registered Apprenticeship Programs have an opportunity to expand their programs by recruiting qualified candidates from an underutilized group: individuals with disabilities.

Description

Not only do 11 percent of American workers identify as living with disabilities, but they bring the kind of unique perspectives that can help sponsors diversify their workplaces while making them more inclusive.  Please join us for a discussion with subject matter experts to learn how to design and run an apprenticeship program that is welcoming to individuals with disabilities.
