05/01/2018 8:00 AM
8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Grant Thornton LLP, 171 North Clark Suite 200, Chicago, IL, 60601
Join the Chicagoland Business Leadership Network (CBLN) in partnership with Grant Thornton and the Great Lakes ADA Center for breakfast and a discussion on policy issues that impact the employment of persons with disabilities in the current political climate. During this session, employers, human resource professionals, talent acquisition managers and ERG/BRG members will gain a deeper understanding of current legislative and policy issues including an update on the status and stability of existing supports like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Affordable Care Act. In addition, they will learn about successful policy collaboration models between the business and disability communities that may offer opportunities to address current employment gaps being faced by Chicago area businesses.
