Employment First Summit

A critical priority for the State of Wyoming is to empower our citizens, and recognize the systems change efforts happening nationwide that reflect an increase in community-based, integrated employment opportunities for individuals with significant disabilities. 
Wyoming's Employment First initiative says competitive and integrated employment shall be considered the first option when serving persons with disabilities who are of working age to obtain employment. All citizens, including individuals with significant disabilities, are capable of full participation in integrated employment and community life. 

Join us for the 3rd annual Employment First Summit October 12! Tentative schedule and all registration information can be found above under Project > Employment First Summit or click HERE to register to attend!
