Description: Debby Fisher has been on the cutting-edge of community living so people with disabilities can participate in and enjoy all aspects of life–like everyone else. Join us for an important and lively conversation about the issues and the missed opportunities when people with disabilities are not part of the workforce and strategies to assist people with disabilities to find meaningful employment.
Everyone’s Welcome to participate! If you’re involved in education, hiring, management, administration of a corporate, non-profit or educational organization, are someone living with a disability interested in becoming employed or expanding your career opportunities, or someone who cares about belonging, inclusion, and full participation in community life, we look forward to seeing you!
