Equip for Equality is host site for the ADA Audio Conference Series 2006-2007. Monthly sessions will be presented beginning October 17, 2006 through September 2007. The continuing education series, focusing on the issues, trends, and challenges to implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act, is a collaborative effort of the regional Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center, which is part of the Department on Disability and Human Development at University of Illinois Chicago. The program will offer three series in 2006-2007 to provide participants with a concentration in one or more special topic areas. They include Accessible IT (2), Employment (4) and Issues Associated with the Built Environment (2).
The ADA Audio Conference Series is a valuable resource for employers, supervisors, human resource and legal professionals, independent living centers, business owners, consumers, advocates, ADA coordinators, and officials of state and local government.
