Our monthly webinars/phone conferences called, TUESDAY TALKS, are a great way to start your engagement with Disability:IN Pennsylvania and involve others from your organization. TUESDAY TALKS allow companies from across the state and country to quickly learn about a valuable resource or success story related to the employment of people with disabilities.

During TUESDAY TALKS, businesses are able to have discussions with their peers about topics that address: ideas for accommodations; ways to improve recruitment and/or retention; ideas for becoming a company of choice for employees and customers; strategies for compliance; financial incentives available to businesses; and more!
