Exhibitors

The heart of the employABILITY EXPO is an exciting array of companies and organizations who will be located around the perimeter of the main expo hall. It will be a lively mix of companies and organizations who will be displaying an abundance of services, information, programs and opportunities that can assist employers in their efforts to become an inclusive employer, and attendees to be more successful in their career exploration and/or job search efforts.

This year's virtual employABILITY EXPO features online, interactive booths that expo participants can visit and interact with. For more information on virtual booth customization and registration click here.

As an employer, your Exhibit will have many benefits, including:

  • Making a strong statement about your commitment to having an inclusive workplace and being "disability friendly".
  • Connecting with candidates for current job openings, internships, summer hires, work experience or volunteer positions.
  • Informing attendees about future career opportunities with your company or in your industry.

As an agency, your Exhibit will allow visitors the opportunity to see what services you offer to help them become an inclusive employer.

Additionally, each registered virtual booth will receive a free copy of Randy Lewis' book:  No Greatness without Goodness: How a Father's Love Changed a Company and Sparked a Movement  (hardcover, $26.99).

DASCHWorks

DASCHWorks Logo The goal of DASCHWorks is to support individuals with intellectual disabilities in developing the skills needed to secure successful, competitive employment that will further promote inclusion and engagement within our community. This is done by providing DASCHWorks students with information about entering the workforce, pre-employment and technical skills training.

For youth and adults with intellectual disabilities, it can be challenging to find and maintain meaningful, competitive, long-term employment. This is often due to the lack of inclusion in the workforce, lack of available proper and suitable training in the community or negative stereotypes and stigmas around those who have an intellectual disability.
