New Behind-the-Scenes Videos: Meet the Cast of the ‘Working Works’ PSA

Want to learn more about the individuals featured in the Campaign for Disability Employment’s (CDE) “Working Works” public service announcement (PSA)? Three new videos feature interviews with several of its cast members, including: Bruce Goebel, a cabinet maker who had a machinery accident that severed his right hand; Chanelle Houston, a research analyst who experienced a spinal cord injury in 2009; and Ish Escobar, a veteran with service-connected disabilities. In the videos, Bruce, Chanelle and Ish talk about their experiences returning to work after injury or illness and the important role that different people—including employers, colleagues, healthcare professionals and family members—played in supporting them along the way. View the videos and read the bios of the PSA cast members.

CDE to Host March 21 ‘Working Works’ Twitter Chat

Working works. It lets people earn a living and contribute their skills and experience. For some, it may also be about pursuing a passion, taking on new challenges or being part of a team. During a Twitter chat on March 21, 2019 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET, the CDE will explore the many reasons people work and the important roles different people—including employers, colleagues, healthcare professionals and family members—play in helping individuals who become ill or injured remain in the workforce. Joining in the conversation will be special guest Chanelle Houston, one of the participants in the CDE’s “Working Works” PSA, who will share her experiences returning to work after a spinal cord injury nine years ago. To participate, join Twitter at the designated time using the hashtag #WorkingWorks.

Campaign for Disability Employment

The Campaign for Disability Employment's (CDE) What can YOU do?” (WCYD) initiative is a positive outreach initiative aimed at increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities by challenging common misperceptions. It sends a clear message: people with disabilities want to work and their talents and abilities benefit businesses both financially and organizationally. By implementing good workplace practices, such as maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities. All it takes is recognizing the value they add to the workplace and fostering a work culture welcoming of the talents of all individuals. We encourage organizations of all sizes and in all industries to join our effort. Vist WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org to learn more! Contact - info@WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org
