The United States Department of Labor is a cabinet-level department of the U.S. federal government responsible for occupational safety, wage and hour standards, unemployment insurance benefits, re- employment services, and more. One of the policy agencies within DOL is the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), which aims to develop and influence policies and practices that increase the number and quality of employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Under the auspices of the Department of Labor’s ePolicyWorks initiative, ODEP partnered with NCD to host three highly successful online dialogues between March 2014 and August 2014 using IdeaScale technology.
