2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

Limited Capacity seats available

Historically, state agencies, community organizations, and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have worked independently to improve competitive integrated employment outcomes. This presentation will focus on lessons learned from 14 Partnerships in Employment state consortiums, which support stakeholder collaboration to change state and local employment policies and practices. Each state consortium brings together unique, but important partners that work together to overcome barriers to employment. Participants will hear from the national evaluator and a panel of Partnerships in Employment state consortium members from the District of Columbia, Hawaii and Utah. Topics include lessons learned about convening a consortium and improving relationships, strategies for introducing and implementing employment policies and legislation, and other project findings related to improving collaboration at the state, community, and individual level.
