The NILG and Cornell University are partnering on a survey-based research project to build an understanding of how federal contractors are initially responding to the recent Section 503 regulations. Specifically, the survey asks questions about:
- Affirmative action goals/targets related to employing individuals with disabilities
- Use of the Voluntary Self-Identification Form to collect disability status information
- Practices that are working and challenges that remain to implementing Section 503
By collecting these data and sharing results with the contractor community the goal is to promote good practice and develop tools and resources for areas where contractors see challenges with implementation. Participants who complete this survey will receive a copy of a final report and free access to six online courses on workplace disability inclusion eligible for six HRCI credit. To learn more and take the survey please visit: www.YTI.cornell.edu/survey/NILG
The more contractors that we get to complete the survey the more useful the results will be. The survey is now open and will close on September 29.
