'Unity, Purpose, Change' Celebrated at Annual Meeting 2022
In addition to the newly announced New York State Disability Rights and Employment Awareness Month, October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), which emphasizes the contributions of people with disabilities throughout America's diverse workforce.
It’s fitting then that NYSID’s 2022 Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation was held on Wednesday, October 19, showcasing how employment positively impacts the lives of individuals with disabilities.
We are grateful to these individuals, and our Member Agencies, Corporate Partners, customers, supporters, and strategic partners, for the impact of their Unity, Purpose and Change toward a more inclusive New York than ever before.
“I’m proud of the 6,185 jobs created on 3,211 NYSID contracts: 4,642 (or 71%) were competitive integrated employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities,” said President & CEO Maureen O’Brien.
