Sign Up Now to Take Part in an Online Dialog About STEM Careers and People with Disabilities

Text Size:+ | -

The Department of Labor’s ePolicyWorks is hosting an online dialog about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) jobs and people with disabilities. They want to hear your ideas and recommendations on how to ensure that job opportunities in the STEM fields are open to everyone, including people with disabilities, and that individuals with disabilities are able to secure and succeed in those positions.

According to a report from the Department of Commerce, U.S. employment in STEM jobs has grown three times faster than that of non-STEM jobs. Also, STEM workers command higher wages, earning 26 percent more than their non-STEM counterparts.

Unfortunately, people with disabilities often face challenges to pursuing degrees and careers in STEM and are underrepresented in the STEM fields. If you have ideas on how to change that, ePolicyWorks would like to hear from you. To share your thoughts and ideas, visit the ePolicyWorks website and register a free account here.

For questions or more information, contact ePolicyWorks at ePolicyWorks@dol.gov .
