Established in 1989, the ST. LAWRENCE STRING QUARTET earned international recognition within a few years, winning both the Banff Quartet Competition and the Young Concert Artists audition in 1992. The group has since developed an undisputed reputation as a truly world class chamber ensemble. Called "witty, buoyant, and wickedly attentive (The Gazette, Montreal), with a "peerless" sense of ensemble (Financial Times, London), the quartet is celebrated for its "smoldering intensity" (Washington Post), and "flexibility, dramatic fire and… hint of rock ‘n' roll energy" (LA Times). SLSQ performs internationally and has served as Ensemble in Residence at Stanford University since 1998.

Description
This Lunch & Learn Series covers successful strategies for employing individuals with disabilities. The series is designed for human resource professionals and small business managers. Attendees may attend all 4 sessions or single sessions that are of interest. There is no requirement to attend previous sessions before registering for a session of interest.

Registration cost: $10 and includes lunch.

Program Summary: Employers may be ready and eager to include individuals with disabilities in their workplaces but still have questions and concerns about accommodations. What is a reasonable accommodation? How much do accommodations really cost? How do accommodations factor into the essential job functions? How can accommodations benefit my organization? We will address these topics and more at this workshop.

The purpose of this session is to educate HR professionals and small business managers on what the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) states about reasonable accommodations and essential job functions in the workforce and how you can create a more inclusive, productive work environment for your staff.

Local Successes: Learn how innovative items and ideas were utilized to accommodate South Carolina employees to achieve success at their jobs.
Local Resources: Learn about resources that can help you determine what accommodations may be best and how to implement them.
