Advancing Disability Inclusion
Happy New Year!
On behalf of the Disability:IN Uinta County Board of Directors and staff, we wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year.
Starting a new year, many people remember last year’s achievements and failures and look forward to the promise of a new year, of a new beginning. We take stock and plan new courses of action to better our lives. I would like to thank those who contributed to our 2020 voyage by continuing disability inclusion efforts and supporting youth with disabilities & at-risk. Despite the pandemic, we were able to impact the lives of youth and businesses within our community.
This year we are working with Cultivate Ability, located in Jackson WY, in surveying employers concerning elevating disability inclusion in the workplace in order to plan a series of webinars to support employers as they commit to disability inclusion.
We are seeking your input on planning future webinars.
