Disability: The "D" in Diversity

Come learn about a new tool for Higher Education Recruitment Consortium (HERC) member institutions to diversity your pipeline of qualified applicants with disabilities.

As part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), HERC is co-sponsoring a webinar with the US Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) and the Employer Assistance Resource Network (EARN) that will give you access to a free, powerful tool, the Workforce Recruitment Program database, that will give your institution immediate access to qualified recent graduates and military veterans with disabilities.
