Summary Report of the 2018 Alameda County Disability Employment Awareness Conference and Training

Our Mission

The conference is intended to inspire leadership and workforce professionals to build a more collaborative, inclusive and diverse workplace that supports employees with disabilities while ensuring better customer service to people with disabilities. This goal requires trained decision makers, informed management and supervisory staff with hiring authority to think creatively during both the talent acquisition and talent management processes. The conference provides best practices to help stimulate the creative process and an opportunity for managers to gain knowledge, tools and resources to work optimally with persons with disabilities. While the purpose of the conference was initially to join the nationwide observance of the National Disability Employment Awareness Month of October, the County’s purpose has since, grown as the County seeks to provide Diversity and Inclusion leadership in workforce development for persons with disabilities.

This one-day practical and knowledge-based educational event is open to supervisors and managers, at all levels, employed by Alameda County agencies/departments, Alameda County service providers (such as the Alameda County Superior Court, Medical Center and Law Library), and those employed with local government agencies within Alameda County and surrounding counties. The Conference is also open to private industries, community based organizations, individuals working with or interested in workforce development for persons with disabilities and all public agencies.
