The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment (SLATE) is teaming up with St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Jefferson Franklin Consortium, Madison County, IL, and St. Clair County, IL workforce development boards to present Accommodation for Success ’24. This event, scheduled for March 22, 2024, at the St. Louis Community College – Forest Park Campus Student Center, is specifically designed to support job seekers with disabilities and promote inclusivity in the workplace.

Empowering Employers and Job Seekers

The event will consist of two parts, with the morning session (8 am – 12 pm) focused on educating employers. Workshops will cover essential topics such as legal insights, accommodations, and firsthand experiences to enhance their understanding and practices in hiring individuals with disabilities. The afternoon session (1 pm – 3 pm) will provide job seekers with the opportunity to network with employers committed to diversity and inclusivity in the workplace. This event promises to create meaningful connections and opportunities for all attendees.

“Each year, one of the Local Workforce Development Boards takes the lead in organizing this remarkable event, and this year, the City of St. Louis-SLATE is proud to serve as the host,” said Fredrecka McGlown, Executive Director of SLATE. “Together, we have the chance to make a real impact by providing outreach, connections, and solutions to ensure that employers have the necessary education and accommodations for job seekers with disabilities, and that job seekers have the tools and empowerment to succeed in today’s workforce.”
