By Nicky Miller 

Earlier this month Elaine Katz, senior vice president of grants and communications at Kessler Foundation, spoke at the My Talent Pipeline Launch Symposium. She shared the results of the latest national trends in disability employment labor report, also known as nTIDE. Kessler Foundation collaborates with the University of New Hampshire’s Institute on Disability to issue the report and to analyze the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Jobs Report in relation to the disabilities community.  

The keynote speaker was Joe Zesski, NJ Affiliate program manager for the Cornell University’s Northeast ADA Center. Zesski is an expert in the field of creating successful employment strategies for organizations of all sizes that seek to cultivate an inclusive talent culture. He shared how to use the results of the Center’s 2019 survey, ADA Title I: New Jersey Workplace Trends, to benchmark integrative opportunities and solutions for organizations along with revealing case studies about how successful companies are adding talent that positively adds to their bottom line, reduces turnover, and increases market retention.

Attendees walked away with insights, relevant tips, resources, and data to deliver an abilities-talent acquisition strategy for their companies.
