Employment First: Expanding Job Opportunities and Pathways to Work breakout sessions announced!
Register today for  Employment First: Expanding Job Opportunities and Pathways to Work. Join us on June 11 for over 20 breakout sessions, updates from DDS leadership, exhibitors and an exciting employer panel. This conference will provide you an opportunity to learn about promising practices, strategies and resources you can use to expand employment opportunities for individuals served by the Department of Developmental Services in Massachusetts.
 
You won't want to miss the keynote presentation by Liz Weintraub, host of   Tuesdays with Liz: Disability Policy for All. Liz will bring a personal perspective to the conversation about expanding employment opportunities for people with intellectual development. Join Liz and ICI's own David Hoff later in the day for the most up to date policy information at the state and federal level. Check out all the breakout sessions at   www.employmentfirstma.org/conference/.
