They Have So Much to Give: People with Disabilities in the Workforce

Friends,

In this video clip, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) introduces us to Zoe, an intern in the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee offices who is also on the autism spectrum.

I invite you to view this short clip and allow Zoe and Senator Harkin to remind us both of how far we’ve come and how much farther we have yet to go before people with disabilities are truly welcomed and integrated into our workforce.

  1. I think this speaks to the need for career development for those with special needs to evolve far beyond, grocery packing, message delivery and fetching!
