Bruyere, Susanne

“The 20-year anniversary celebration of the ADA [on July 26, 2010] marks two decades of progress in tearing down barriers to full participation in society for Americans with disabilities. The ADA has transformed the workplace, architecture and urban planning. As we celebrate the ADA's influence on the workplace ADA, we must also reflect on what remains to be done. The disparity in workforce participation rates for people with disabilities confirms the importance of our increased vigilance to minimize workplace barriers and maximize labor market opportunities.”

Comments on the impact of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) - 20th anniversary by Susanne Bruyere, Associate Dean and Professor of Disability Studies, Director - Employee Disability Institute at the Cornell University School of Industrial & Labor Relations
