How can people with disabilities create career opportunities? Each week, AAPD Board Chair Joyce Bender discusses the employment and empowerment of people with disabilities on her radio show: Disability Matters. Today’s edition of Disability Matters features Michael Murray, AAPD Director of Programs, offering listeners info and insight on Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) 2011. DMD, a job-shadow and career exploration program, links students and jobseekers with disabilities to employers interested in hiring people with disabilities. Every year, AAPD coordinates DMD through a network of more than 200 volunteers.
DMD 2011 will take place on Wednesday, October 19th.
Disability Matters is on the VoiceAmerica Channel every Tuesday from 2:00pm - 3:00 pm EST.
