  2012 National Disability Employee Awareness Month Event  
(Special Event)

October is national disability employee awareness month. This year's theme focuses on including individuals with disabilities in the workforce thus strengthening the workforce. By integrating individuals with disabilities into the workforce, the workforce becomes more diverse, inclusive, creative, and stronger. This year's celebration features an overview of universal design which is a concept of design employing design standards that make environments accessible to all individuals. The presentation will discuss the seven major components of universal design and what they mean in practice.

Our keynote speaker will give a presentation on Real Life Design. The principles of universal design offer guidelines for making the spaces and products we use every day more convenient and useable for everyone. The program will present research and design solutions that can be incorporated into our homes and work spaces to enhance access, comfort, and function.
