Workforce Study

On September 15, 2020 The Arc hosted a virtual seminar to discuss the findings from a nine-month project on employment opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and Direct Support Professionals (DSP) on the Upper Shore of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. This study identifies opportunities for businesses to be more inclusive, diverse, and accessible, and identifies employment gaps for DSPs. The study sets benchmarks for businesses seeking to diversify their workforce and offers solutions to seek undiscovered talent in their own communities.

A recording of the seminar will be available shortly.
