2021 Kessler Foundation Virtual Grantee Symposium

March 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Join us at our 2nd virtual symposium to continue our discussion on how artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the world of work for people with disabilities. As recent advances in AI streamline the hiring and onboarding process for employers, these tools are becoming more popular in screening applications and evaluating job candidates. Data sets used to develop AI learning, such as facial recognition, employment history, trait testing, and gaming often do not include the experience of people with disabilities and other marginalized populations, leading to bias in hiring practices. Our expert panel will cover understanding and planning for the risks and opportunities that AI technology brings to the users, job types most affected by AI, and how to prepare and use this technology successfully for online interviews and accommodations. Whether you are a job-seeker or a professional working within the employment and disability field, this webinar will help you navigate the new AI employment landscape.
