LEAP: The Benefits of Disability-Inclusive Employment

LEAP training is a free, one-hour presentation for Champaign County business leaders, hiring managers, and anyone else interested in learning about inclusive employment and the disability community.

The training is split into three sections:
* General education, including disability rights history, definitions, and etiquette;
* Economic benefits for companies who employ individuals with disabilities; and
* Free employment services that DSC and Community Choices specialists provide, such as site consultation, working with the business to identify and meet their needs, and help with accommodations

The one-hour window includes time for questions at the end and discussion throughout. Attending companies will be promoted on the social media channels of both organizations following the session, and ongoing support is offered to employers looking to create a more inclusive workplace.

Please contact Maggie Baker at mbaker@dsc-illinois.org or (217) 356-9176 with any questions or requests.

Auto-captioning is available when using the Teams app but not when viewing through a web browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Edge). We recognize that live captioning (e.g. CARTS) is much more accurate and preferred to auto-captioning. We hope to be able to offer this in the future. If you require captions and are unable to use the Teams app, please let us know at the bottom of this form and we will identify a solution for the meeting. A live auto-transcript can also be requested below.

Audio-only and TTY calls
At this time, we are unable to offer dial-in numbers through Teams. If you require an audio-only option, please state so on the form below and we will identify a solution for the meeting.
