Disability Emphasis Program

As the Disability Special Emphasis Program Manager I will support a workplace environment that ensures civil rights and EEO free of discriminatory bias and reprisals; and where the workforce, customers, and business partners are treated fairly with dignity and respect. I encourage the employment of qualified persons with disabilities and provide support to currently employed persons with disabilities. I support Pennsylvania NRCS in its effort to promote a diverse and qualified workforce.

The Disability Emphasis Program Manager encourages employment of qualified persons with disabilities. These opportunities include a broad range of grade levels and occupational series within NRCS.

The program seeks to promote understanding and appreciation of individuals with disabilities, create full participation in a work environment that capitalizes on creativity and richness, promote understanding of the requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, provide reasonable accommodations and accessibilities, and encourage managers to provide career enhancement and promotions for people with disabilities.
