About DI-UCW

Our Story

Disability IN: Uinta County (DI-UCW) promotes disability inclusion in Uinta County. We began operations in 1998 as The Evanston Business Leader Network (BLN). In 2000, programs & services expanded to Bridger Valley.

Due to extreme state-wide budget cuts in 2012, we formed a local Board of Directors. At this time, we also renamed the organization to the Uinta County BLN. Financially, DI-UCW operates through grants & generous donations.

We were and are the only remaining BLN in Wyoming.  In 2018, our national association rebranded to “Disability IN”.

Wanda Rogers

Wanda was a visionary for creating opportunities for people with disabilities. She co-developed and directed Disability: IN Uinta County for 26 years. She assisted businesses in hiring, retaining, and promoting the employment of people with disabilities through education and training.

Wanda also established NexGen Leaders, which provides mentoring opportunities for at-risk high school students and those with disabilities.

Wanda never saw anything negative about a person – all she saw was the good in them. Today challenge yourself to do that a little more. Look for the good in others and see someone as Wanda did!
