2024 Disability Employment Awareness Luncheon

Description

Disability Rights Tennessee (DRT) protects the rights of Tennesseans with disabilities. Our annual Disability Employment Awareness Luncheon (DEAL) highlights DRT's dedication to Employment First and boosts funding for advocacy and policy efforts. Join us as we unite nonprofit, government, and business leaders to foster inclusive workplaces.

 

Did you know that people with disabilites are the largest minority in the United States? They are also the most underemployed group. Tennessee has an unemployment rate of 35%, though the vast majority want to work.
 

You can help! Organizations and businesses like yours can hire, retain, advocate for, and advance the employment dreams of people with disabilities. Join us in changing this statistic by partnering with DRT at our 2024 Disability Employment Awareness Luncheon (DEAL).
