Partnership will recruit and retain individuals with disabilities for Ohio State careers

The Ohio State University and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD), the state agency responsible for workforce development and placement of individuals with disabilities, have partnered to place an OOD career specialist exclusively at Ohio State. This will be the first time OOD has embedded an employee within a single organization to focus on enhancing the recruitment and retention of individuals with disabilities and best practices for creating an inclusive workplace environment.

This joint, full-time position formalizes a strong partnership between Ohio State and OOD, and establishes a dedicated resource for Ohioans with disabilities who seek an Ohio State career.

“This is a fantastic example of an innovative university and state partnership that will create more career opportunities for Ohioans,” said Alison Mincey, associate vice president in Ohio State’s Office of Human Resources.
