Jason Olsen, President, Federal Employees with Disabilities

The federal government aims to be a model employer, welcoming diversity and fostering an inclusive environment. To that end, it's hiring people with disabilities at the fastest clip in decades. Eighteen percent of new hires in 2013 reported they had some sort of disability. But problems remain. Today, Federal Employees with Disabilities, a grassroots organization, has paired with a group representing Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual and Transgendered feds. They're holding a training program with some big speakers lined up. Jason Olson is the group's president. He joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin with a glimpse behind the conference curtain.
