Do you know of an employer who hires individuals with disabilities? If so, let the Anne Arundel County Commission on Disability Issues know about this company. The commission is seeking nominations of employers who hire individuals with disabilities to be honored at the annual disAbility Awareness Day 2012.
“The 2012 disAbility Awareness Day will be held during Disability Employment Awareness Month in October at Westfield Annapolis mall on Oct. 27. At the event County Executive John R. Leopold and the Commission will recognize, among several categories, employers who hire individuals with disabilities,” says Ginger Palmer, commission chairman, of Edgewater.
“This is a tribute to those businesses that diversify their workforce,” says County Executive Leopold. “Their hiring of individuals with disabilities contributes to their business success and helps those individuals to have better lives.”
