Benefits of Webinars
Participating in a webinar can support the professional development of an individual, entire department or agency for less cost than sending staff to comparable training events.
Businesses and sponsoring agencies can host a webinar and invite individuals, co-workers, local employers and community partners to participate on-site, and use the time following the webinar to discuss their employment program and dialogue with participants about "next steps" to improve their approach to disability inclusion and employing individuals with disabilities.
