October is traditionally celebrated as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year COVID-19 presented challenges to many of the live celebrations that typically take place. Please join Stephanie Lipe and Sherry Sparks, members of the Workforce Development Unit, DHS-Division of Rehabilitation Services, and Kathy West-Evans, Director of Business Relations for the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation, for both a state and national perspective of activities that could be planned. Kathy works with many national companies that conduct business in multiple states as one of her many job duties. The Workforce Development Unit sponsored their first employer recognition awards and will share how they conducted the awards from start to finish. They will also share some of the companies being recognized for their achievements in working with persons with disabilities. Kathy will share some vocational rehabilitation recognition ideas from other states along with information about the National Employment Team and how these efforts build visibility with business. Windmills Disability Awareness Training and similar opportunities will also be discussed.
