November ASK Networking Breakfast
Accommodating Disabilities in the Workplace
Tuesday, November 11, 2014
8:30am – 9:30am
Loop campus, DePaul Center 11th Floor, DePaul Club
Join us as DePaul University’s Center for Students with Disabilities shares insights into how people with disabilities, such as autism, AD/HD, learning and/or physical disabilities, manifest in the workplace and learn strategies in nurturing a successful environment for both employers and employees.
Leading the discussion will be Judith Kolar, Director of DePaul’s Center for Students with Disabilities. Judith began her tenure at DePaul as a part-time clinician (LD Specialist) in the PLuS Program in 2002, while also consulting part-time for non-profits in donor research and grant development. Her commitment to DePaul deepened with the years leading her to accept the newly established, full-time position in 2005 as PLuS Program Assistant Director, and in 2007, Judith was appointed Director of the Productive Learning Strategies (PLuS) Program. In 2012, DePaul merged three separate departments serving students with disabilities (PLuS Program, Chronic Illness and the Office of Students of Students with Disabilities) into one newly created Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) with responsibility to coordinate accommodations for all DePaul students with documented disabilities; at that time, Judith was appointed Director for the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD). http://bit.ly/ASKBreakfastNov2014
