I Want to Work for the Federal Government:

FREE Training for People with Disabilities and Employment Specialists

  • Is the Federal Government a good employment option for people with disabilities?
  • What can we expect from the Obama Administration on this topic?
  • How can I apply for a federal job?

Come hear the answers to these questions and much more during an informative session with EEOC Vice Chair Christine Griffin. Vice Chair Griffin will discuss the current status of employment opportunities in the federal government. Jo Linda Johnson, also of the EEOC, will talk about a hiring authority available to federal agencies, specifically to bring on individuals with disabilities, and how one can make themselves eligible for it. Dinah Cohen, Director of the Department of Defense CAP Program — — will talk about her program, which provides assistive technology and computer-based accommodations to federal employees. CAP exists to support increased employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. If you are a person with a disability looking for employment, or are a person who has anything to do with helping individuals with disabilities find jobs, this free training session is for you!
