Free ASA Webinar Next Week—Creating Opportunities for Disabled Workers

One in five people in the U.S. have a disability, so there’s a strong likelihood that individuals working in your company have disabilities or have ties to someone with disabilities—and studies have shown that fostering a corporate culture that is inclusive of people with disabilities is a good business practice. Find out how to remove stigmas and barriers associated with disability during the ASA webinar “Disability Inclusion in the Workplace.” It takes place Wednesday, Oct. 6, 3–4 p.m. Eastern time.

All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit
