Our next FULL ACCESS Student Summit will be in Cambridge, MA, November 18-19, 2016.
FULL ACCESS Student Summits are regional educational and networking events for students with disabilities and employers to become more comfortable with one another.
The purpose of FULL ACCESS is to bring together up to sixty college students or recent alumni with disabilities and ten select employers for a two half-day networking and education summit. The students are those who are attending or have attended colleges and universities in a specific regional or state area.
The primary goals of the Summit are to have college students and recent alumni with disabilities to be comfortable when talking with employers and for employers to have first-hand experience with people with disabilities to help keep this population in the forefront of their minds when developing Diversity recruitment plans.
It should be noted that FULL ACCESS is not a career fair and is not an opportunity for onsite interviews with individual students. However, after the Summit, interviews are encouraged and may be scheduled. Despite the billing of not being a hiring event, the FULL ACCESS Student Summit has had great success in identifying full-time and internship opportunities and offers to many candidates have been made.
