Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) is the State of Ohio agency that empowers Ohioans with disabilities through employment, disability determinations, and independence.
Jacob Karnes and Julie Wood will provide an overview of OOD’s services to employers which support businesses in their efforts to recruit and retain employees with disabilities, foster disability-inclusive workplace cultures, create accessible environments, and create workforce solutions for museums.
The presentation will also feature information about OOD’s newly proposed initiative, Accessible Ohio. The presenters will highlight how Accessible Ohio further empowers Ohioans with disabilities and their families to participate in all aspects of public life by supporting Ohio’s cities, counties, state agencies, attractions, and venues to be accessible and inclusive.
Julie Zeigler Wood is the Worksite Accessibility Specialist with the Division of Employer and Innovation Services at Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. Julie’s area of focus is worksite accessibility and Title I of the ADA. She provides consultations for Ohio employer partners that support a shared goal to remove workplace barriers and increase access to work for people with disabilities. Prior to joining Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities, Julie practiced as an Occupational Therapist for 13-years, nine of which were spent operating a private practice. She provided a variety of work-related therapy services aimed at enabling people to obtain, return to, and remain at work.
