Kennesaw State University is hosting a series of seminars next week focusing on workplace issues for people with disabilities in the Middle East.
Representatives from a dozen Arab countries, including a member of the royal family of the United Arab Emirates, are scheduled to attend. The event, which is closed to the public, begins Monday and ends Thursday.
The college's Global Center for Social Change is sponsoring the conference.
The center opened in 2006 and has worked with universities and other groups in this country and abroad to develop initiatives for people with disabilities, college officials said. The center formed a partnership with the Egyptian University Sports Federation in 2008 focusing on athletics for people with disabilities.
