What a day of inspiration and celebration

at the Inaugural InspHired Luncheon!

Our Chief Advancement Officer, Kim Vassar, and CEO, Julie Price kicked off the event as we came together to honor National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month, and the incredible individuals with disabilities who dream big about building their careers.

Recognizing the importance of ensuring all people have equal opportunity to contribute their skills and talents, this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (#NDEAM) theme is Fueling Workplace Ambition, demonstrating that people with disabilities are ambitious and have the knowledge and skills to be meaningful additions to the workforce. You can learn more here.

Our goal was to shine a spotlight on Disability Employment by honoring individuals with disabilities pursuing meaningful careers and the employers championing inclusive workplaces.

Allison Chase from The Able Trust started the program with an insightful keynote that highlighted the progress we’ve made and the goals we have yet to achieve when it comes to true inclusivity and equality in the community and in the workplace.


We thank our award presenters, our dedicated Board of Directors, Business Advisory Council, dedicated team members, event committee and our student and participant ambassadors – your involvement was instrumental to the success of this inaugural event! We are already looking forward to next year!
