The Academy launched Working Together in the spring of 2015, as an initiative to generate ideas that improve services and supports for working-age persons with disabilities and/or that promote access to quality services and supports. Using IdeaScale, an online crowd-sourcing platform, Academy members and other experts in disability and health were invited to participate by submitting ideas and/or voting on submitted ideas.
