Connecting Practices to Outcomes: Lessons from the Federal Sector Workplace

Cost: Free

Format: Webinar

Where: Online/Web-based

Sponsored By:

Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability at Cornell University


Employer policies and practices that reduce discrimination and improve inclusion are essential pathways to the full employment of individuals with disabilities. This webinar will focus on evidence of effective employer practices from the federal government. Disability related data collection in federal agencies allow the research community to carefully examine the relationship between the employment of individuals with disabilities and employer policies and practices. Findings from the federal workforce are of interest beyond the federal sector given the relative share of the total US workforce, diversity in occupational representation, and regulatory requirements regarding disability employment.

In this webinar, we introduce a new NIDILRR-funded study focused on the federal sector. We will begin with a description of the level, trends, and types of employment observed for employees with disabilities in the federal workforce. We then identify lessons learned from the federal workforce using a range of data sources. We will present results on how specific practices described in EEO Management Directive 715 relate to observed employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. We will then present an analysis of the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey summarizing where disparities exist in federal workplace experience and perspectives by disability status, and early findings on how agency practices may moderate these disparities. Our next steps include gathering qualitative feedback from federal employees with and without disabilities to help add context to our findings.
