APSE – Advancing Employment. Connecting People.

 

 

 

I had the privilege today to speak at the 23rd Annual National APSE Conference in Arlington, Virginia. My topic? Apps and Ethics: Using Technology to Facilitate Effective Productivity. A good audience and a great time of networking with friends and colleagues. These networking working opportunities are priceless…back in February I was speaking at a conference in Wisconsin where I had a chance to reconnect and visit briefly with Laura Owens, Executive Director of APSE. I mentioned my current work and through a series of post chat emails and connections, I was able to present a national webinar for APSE in April and present again today at the national conference. Don’t ever underestimate the power of networking!

So back to APSE…

APSE’s sole focus is integrated employment and career advancement opportunities for individuals with disabilities. This national organization has chapters in 35 states and the District of Columbia. Membership is open to anyone committed to ensuring “integrated employment continues to grow and improve.” The APSE website contains training opportunities, publications, and a great section for employers. This section offers employers training and professional development in support of employment for people with differing abilities.
