Members of the Employees for the Advancement of People with Disabilities ERG want to work for an agency whose landscape is inclusive and free of all barriers (including attitudinal), and as united, equal contributors to the mission of the National Park Service.
- Serve as a catalyst for cultural change within the NPS for present and potential employees with disabilities, their families, their supervisors and co-workers, allies, and NPS managers.
- Strive for equity in the opportunities for employees with disabilities to be recruited and hired, to improve and advance, and to fully participate in every facet of NPS life.
- Advise NPS senior leadership on policies and practices that support employees, emphasize the issues we have in common, and advocate for awareness and an inclusive, respectful and positive environment.
The Employees for the Advancement of People with Disabilities ERG is open to all NPS employees and allies from every level of the agency, regardless of disability, including concessionaires, interns, alumni, volunteers, and employees from partner organizations, as allowable by law or policy. Membership is completely voluntary.
- A Conversation on Disability Inclusion and Reasonable Accommodations – Learn more about disability inclusion and how it creates an environment that allows reasonable accommodations to prosper and grow.
