We’re excited to announce this year’s launch of our Working Together’s Employment Webinar Series: Your Next Best Hire!

This webinar series is an effort by LaDDC’s Working Together Campaign to bring focus on what employers should know and consider when considering building a diverse workforce, which includes people with developmental disabilities.

The series consists of five webinars that will bring together experts from agencies and companies; employees with disabilities; and other stakeholders who will share best practices for building a diverse workforce.
