Join ODR for the 12th Annual Mayor's Disability and Diversity Expo to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month!

About this Event

In recognition of October being National Disability Employment Awareness Month the Office of Disability Rights (ODR) in partnership with several agencies will host the 12th Annual Mayor's Disability and Diversity Expo. The purpose of this free event is to advance the conversation on equal opportunities and inclusive environments for people with disabilities, complete with informational sessions and over 40 exhibitors. The District of Columbia is home to over 116,000 people with disabilities and this year more than 500 consumers, caregivers, advocates and students are invited to attend.

This year’s Expo will highlight the important initiatives and programs offered throughout the District including a graduation ceremony of this year’s cohort of certified ADA Coordinators. Learn from experts during a panel discussion on service animals, entrepreneurship, benefits counseling, and transitioning from school into the workforce.

This all-day event will happen on Thursday, October 24th from 10:00 AM through 3:00 PM. Doors will open at 9:30 AM with a 1-hour program beginning at 10:00 AM.
