Central Florida National Disability Employment Awareness Month Presentation and Celebration

About this event

Step into Orlando Vocational Rehabilitation National Heritage Site and discover the impact we can have with the choices we make today.

In this Disability Employment Awareness Month pop-up installation, learn how Orlando can and has embraced Disability Workforce Inclusion as a solution to its workforce needs and learn why we’re a stronger region because of it.

Before and after the presentation, we invite you to tour the pop-up museum, where through four exhibits, you can learn about the true history of Disability employment in America, experience an On the Job training through an interactive tour, become familiar with many of the issues, key players and providers in Central Florida Disability employment and honor the work of the Disability advocates of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

At the presentation, we invite you to hear from some incredible Guest Speakers including Disabled Persons, business owners, government leaders, job coaches and non-profit partners on the current state of Disability Workforce Inclusion in Central Florida and we invite you to consider their ideas for a brighter future, that may just shape the future of Vocational Rehabilitation. You'll also get to enjoy intermittent original musical performances, and a tribute to some of the fiercest Disability Employment advocates in our region. Lastly, partake in this opportunity to network with leaders in this field and enjoy a free dessert, courtesy of Rita's Italian Ice!

The presentation will last approximately one hour and will begin one hour following the start time of the event. We invite you to explore the museum and network at your own pace in the first and third hour.
