Youth Workforce Development - A Disability in the Workplace Issue

Last Thursday, we hosted our 2nd Intersectional Happy Hour, a quarterly series of events meant to provide an opportunity to dig a little deeper into how the issue areas we work in do not exist in silos. We kicked off this series in November by examining the intersection of Youth Homelessness and the LGBTQ community here in the District.

And last week we continued to explore how issues impacting our young people fit into the larger landscape of issues and trends affecting communities across the District of Columbia, by sharing a bit about how Disability in the Workplace relates to Youth Workforce Development.
With only a 10 minute or so presentation, the other main goal beyond being informative was to spark conversation and new connections. We are thankful to those who were able to join us last Thursday, and are especially grateful to the Midlands for providing the space. But in case you weren't able to make it, we wanted to share what was presented, for this week's blog.

The slides will auto-advance every 15 seconds upon loading, but please use the controls at the bottom to go at your own pace.

And as mentioned at the end, please contact Amy Dudas for additional information and resources.
