Kickoff Meeting: Employment Partnerships Affinity Group

Join the brand new Employment Partnerships Affinity Group for our first meeting! The first meeting will be a “kick off” meeting to share the purpose of the affinity group and will include background information on the focus of employment partnerships through the Think College Inclusive Higher Education Network and the Employment Partnerships collaborative workgroup. There will also be time for discussion to gather participant feedback which will be used to inform future meetings.

About the group: The Employment Partnerships Affinity Group is an open-access group for individuals who want to learn about successful employment partnership collaborations between institutions of higher education (IHEs), Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies, developmental disability (DD) agencies and employers that support students with intellectual disability to go to college. Meetings will include facilitated discussion on opportunities and barriers to employment partnerships for students with ID as well as guest speakers/experts from the field. In addition, resources to raise awareness, highlight promising practice, and replicate successful partnership activities will be shared.
