Disability Rights PA (DRP) is collaborating with Penn State to conduct a project that seeks to learn about the experiences of people with disabilities when voting. You can view the flyer with information about the interviews as well as contact information to participate in the interviews, which are being conducted by researchers at Penn State.
Interviews are happening now over the next two weeks, and there are still spots remaining to be interviewed. DRP and Penn State would very much like to hear from voters with disabilities about their experiences and any barriers they have faced in voting.
The Partnership on Inclusive Apprenticeship released a guide on “Creating Inclusive Virtual & Hybrid Apprenticeships: What Apprentice Learned During COVID-19.” This guide discusses how Apprentice, a technology apprenticeship intermediary, successfully transitioned to a 100% virtual environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their experience shows how apprenticeship programs can actively transform their business models to recruit and support apprentices with disabilities. The guide offers valuable insights, approaches and lessons learned to help other organizations shift to remote work.
