The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) today (TUE) is hosting a virtual event spotlighting businesses that have demonstrated unique disability inclusion efforts.

“It really just celebrates the collaboration between employers hiring people with disabilities. we partner as a vocational relocation program with employers and it just really showcases how great this partnership is of hiring people with disabilities.”

State Services for the Blind Director Natasha Jerde says the virtual event will run from 1-2:30 pm. October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
