WHAT: A career expo featuring 40+ employers who are interested in diversifying their workforce with people with disabilities.
WHO: Any job seeker with disability, even if they are not ready to enter the workforce this is a great opportunity to network and learn about jobs and careers.
WHY: The greater the attendance by job seekers, the greater the attendance by employers.
It's important that we get out job seekers of all abilities with all different types of disabilities. The more interactions employers have with job seekers with disabilities the more we can fight stigma and create more employment opportunities. This includes job seekers working with job coaches or who are looking for supported employment.
