Next Meeting

Thursday, October 20, 2-3pm

Featured Topic: Return to Work

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and our focus this month is “Return to Work.” As many workplaces appear to be resuming pre-COVID practices for in-person attendance, the process of “return to work” may be more complex for some. We would like to know more about your experiences, considerations and concerns regarding this topic.

We encourage you to submit questions or comments ahead of time through our Contact Form, or email Erich and join us for what we expect to be a very engaging and educational conversation. University Disability Resources colleagues will also be on-hand to share guidance and suggestions.

Register via Zoom

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Please Note: If you anticipate needing any sort of assistance or support to help make participation in this event more accessible, please contact Erich Manser at erich_manser@harvard.edu.
