CASE investigates emerging trends and challenges in supported employment.
CASE is committed to sharing and advancing evidence-based best practices and innovative approaches around supported employment and inclusive workplaces for persons experiencing disability.
Before best practices can be established, the successes and challenges must be understood, various approaches must be discussed with diverse stakeholders, and potential new methods must be tested. CASE collaborates with stakeholders in the supported employment sector to learn about the experiences of persons living with disability, including those with intersectional identities, as they navigate their employment journeys.
