Getting Down to Business: Integrating People with Disabilities into the Workplace

What:

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber has been selected by the U.S. Department of Labor to implement a national pilot program to further disability inclusion in small businesses. Join small business leaders and representatives from Cincinnati companies to learn more about how hiring people with disabilities benefits your business.  Topics to be covered include:

  • ROI of employing people with disabilities and veterans
  • Understanding employer tax incentives
  • Local business success stories
  • Workplace accomodation and fostering a culture of openness and comfort

Keynote: Paul Daugherty
Paul is an award-winning sports journalist and author and has been Ohio’s Columnist of the Year seven times. He has covered nearly every major American sporting event, as well as five Summer Olympic Games. He recently published An Uncomplicated Life: A Father’s Memoir of His Exceptional Daughter, an exhilarating and funny love letter to his daughter with Down syndrome. Paul is a dedicated husband and father who has been involved in disabilities advocacy for several years.

Diverse by Design™ is a regional initiative to attract, develop and retain diverse, high potential talent and move Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky to full inclusion.
