During the month of October, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Technology & Accessible Resources Give Employment Today (TARGET) Center is hosting a series of virtual sessions on understanding disability‑related initiatives, current trends, and new technology that support employees, their colleagues, customers, families, and friends. The events are part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and its theme “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.” The virtual sessions will include presentations and workshops by USDA TARGET Center’s accessibility experts, disability professionals, ergonomics experts, and trusted partners.
The USDA TARGET Center aims to provide an integrative hub for disability-related activities that enhances the USDA employer of choice capability for individuals with disabilities. The Center offers many services, such as assistive technology evaluation, ergonomic evaluation, technology demonstrations, presentations and exhibits, and more.
