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.
