To promote inclusive workplaces that embrace the skills and talents of workers with disabilities, the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy signed an alliance agreement today with the Association of University Centers on Disabilities.

The association is a non-profit membership organization that brings together university-based interdisciplinary programs and community resources to achieve meaningful change for people with disabilities in all aspects of society, including the workplace.

"Expanding the availability of resources and information on fostering an inclusive workforce is critical to increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities," said ODEP's Deputy Assistant Secretary Jennifer Sheehy. "Our partnership with AUCD will play an integral role in improving support for jobseekers and workers with disabilities nationwide."
