30th Anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act

  • Watch Kelley Frake as she leads a one-hour webinar on disability inclusion. Her team will join her as she identifies opportunities for educating others about disability inclusion.
  • The State of Michigan will take a look at how it talks about disability in the workplace. Less about compliance and more about inclusion. Disability Inclusion is Part of Your Entire Employment Life-cycle: Disability shouldn’t just be an accommodation discussion. Disability should be included across the employment life-cycle
  • Follow the Michigan Department of Civil Service on our social channels and watch out for the #ADA30 and #DisabilityInclusion or #InclusionMeansEveryone hashtags.
  • Watch Drunk History: Yes, it's a thing. Comedy Central has “historians” share stories of historical events while having a few cocktails. Each episode is about eight minutes. It's a fun way to learn about events in history. Comedy Central did an episode on the Section 504 legislation. This legislation paved the way for the Americans with Disabilities Act and features disability rights activist Judy Heumann, who we interviewed for our blog last year. Note: The episode has a lot of colorful language so it may be more appropriate for a homework assignment rather then a team event.
