If you have been working in disability employment, inclusion or workforce development for any length of time, then you should know that October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This month marks a key opportunity to celebrate the incredible contributions of employees with disabilities.

It also is a good time to educate employers about strategies for recruiting, training and promoting people with disabilities. The theme for 2019’s celebration of employees with disabilities is “The Right Talent, Right Now.”

As such, RespectAbility is delighted to invite you to join us this October for an exciting webinar series promoting best practices in disability employment, employer engagement and workplace culture. Each webinar is FREE, includes open captioning and features a subject matter expert sharing their insights, perspectives and strategies-you-can-use in your own work.

We invite you to join us for a conversation with James Emmett

🍂After that, on Wednesday, Oct. 16:

We are delighted to be hosting two private-sector titans of diversity and inclusion to talk about “
Disability Inclusion, Assimilation and Success.” Learn from
Jim Sinocchi, Managing Director of the Office of Disability Inclusion at JP Morgan Chase about launching “new era of disability inclusion” and “hiring professionals with disabilities into the robust culture of the firm.” Likewise, Vincenzo Piscopo, Community and Stakeholder Relations Director for Coca-Cola will talk about the key work that Coca-Cola has done to bring greater diversity to their team, their culture and their brand.

🇺🇸Lastly, on Tuesday, Oct. 22:

We will shift gears to how the workforce development system can
successfully engage employers
and get more jobs for people with disabilities. To do that, we are hosting leaders from Iowa’s Vocational Rehabilitation System

Brilliant! GREAT IDEA, Team Beto!

BETO-OROURKE-VF-201904-COVER-OPENER-FINAL
Go, Beto, go!!!

From Beto for America:

Credit cards have enabled many of America’s mass shootings in the last decade:

For example, the man who shot up a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, got away with buying $11,000 in assault rifles, gas masks, grenades, and ammo. He just charged it to his credit card.

However inadvertent or deliberate, credit card companies and banks profit off of those who terrorize our communities. And we know that in this moment, no one can sit on the sidelines. Everyone has a responsibility to do their part.

These companies are no exception.

That’s why today we’re calling on the financial industry to do their part to cut off the sales of these weapons of war. …

We’re calling on banks and credit card companies to:

Refuse to provide services for the sales of assault weapons.

Stop processing transactions for gun sales online or at gun shows without background checks.

Stop doing business with gun or ammo manufacturers who produce or sell assault weapons.

If this Congress and this president won’t act, the least the financial industry can do is stop profiting off of sales of these weapons.

If enough of us speak out, they’ll consider it!

The financial industry has played a part in government efforts to stop the illegal drug trade, trafficking, and other violent crimes. It’s time for them to step up now and stop the easy flow of assault weapons to terrorists.

If enough of us make our voices heard now, we stand a chance to make that happen.
