Source: University of New Hampshire
You are cordially invited to attend the release of the Annual Compendium of Disability Statistics and the Third Annual Research-to-Policy Roundtable meeting in Washington, DC. Both events will be held on Wednesday, December 11th.
The event has been moved from Dirksen SD-G50 to Hart Senate Office Building, room SH-902 on the 9th floor. The Hart Senate Office Building is attached to Dirksen, therefore not creating an inconvenience to travel plans for those planning to attend in person.
Participants may attend one or both events online using the Internet, but you must register in advance. Registration is free for both in-person and online attendees.
The Compendium release briefing, held from 9:00 – 11:30am (Eastern time), will include a briefing and a one-hour workshop on the sources and uses of disability statistics. The Compendium is a web-based tool that pools disability statistics published by various federal agencies together in one place. When working on legislative and other matters relating to persons with disabilities, the Compendium will make finding and using disability statistics easier.
The Research-to-Policy Roundtable, scheduled from 1:00 – 3:00pm (Eastern time), will provide an opportunity for disability advocates, policymakers and researchers to highlight this research and discuss ways that policies and programs can better serve persons with disabilities with a focus on employment.
