Celebrating National Disability Employment Awareness Month, Together

I n celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Cuyahoga County Board of DD, Cuyahoga Community College and UCP of Greater Cleveland partnered to host a special forum, " Creating Partnerships for an Inclusive Workplace." Christopher Coleman, author, diversity & inclusion expert, and motivational speaker, shared his journey surpassing all expectations despite his challenges with cerebral palsy. Students and local employers and hiring managers alike were inspired by his message of believing in the talents and contributions of all people.
