Skils’kin supports NDEAM and so can you!
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year’s theme is America’s Workforce: Empowering All. Skils’kin’s constant commitment to empowering all is evident through our mission and values. We commit ourselves to empower communities and individuals on a daily basis. How is October different?
First, we create a digital footprint. We started the last week of September by sending out emails to employees and advocates to recognize and honor NDEAM and share how they are participating in awareness. Now. we continue with our blog and a social media push on Facebook to encourage involvement in the community.
Skils’kin has partnered with the Northwest Center for Autism to hold “Autism Grown Up”, an event that focuses on employment and housing for adults with autism. The event will be held at Centerplace on October 12th from 9 am to 6 pm and features two national keynote speakers.
Skils’kin is having a social with DVR (Department of Vocational Rehabilitation) on Thursday, October 18th from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm. We will be networking, sharing updates on our employment strategies, as well as revealing and demonstrating our new case management software, custom built with CaseWorthy.
We’ll wrap up the month by working with Rotary Club #21’s Partners for Work interview event. This event occurs on October 30th, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm at the Philanthropy Center of Spokane, with a networking event to follow. This event gives the chance for individuals to be interviewed by a panel of employers seeking talented employees. Sign up today, limited space is available.
Employment awareness for people with disabilities is essential in increasing inclusivity. We encourage everyone to be involved in empowering America’s workforce. Please see https://www.dol.gov/odep/topics/ndeam/ for additional resources.
