“Expect. Employ. Empower.”
The 2014 theme of The U.S. Department of Labor’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) If you attended the 2013 Disability Matters Conference in Florida, you heard an inspirational and humorous keynote presentation delivered by Gretchen Vogel, a then 21 year old college student, born with significant disabilities who shared her personal journey to not only survive but thrive. Now a college graduate, Gretchen is delivering her most important message to audiences across the U.S.
Book Gretchen today to serve as the Keynote speaker for your 2014 NDEAM (October) celebration and challenge your employees and leaders to consider their own expectations when it comes to working with someone or even caring for someone with a disability. Gretchen’s story is about Expectations: her parents, medical providers, teachers, eventually her own and finally, yours – the employers. She will take you on a personal journey, one that will be sure to leave you professionally motivated and personally inspired.
