The Department of Labor’s Office on Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) will have a web chat on Thursday, April 8, 2010 from 2:45-4:15 p.m. This is a public chat open to members of the disability community. The conversation will be about ODEP’s strategic plan. For the first time ever, the Department will be asking the public about their thoughts, and brainstorming about ideas for the agency.
