Honor those who prove disabilities no barrier to work
Monday, September 17, 2012
Nominations are now being sought for the annual Disabilities Employment Awareness awards, which honor those who value workers for what they can do, rather what they cannot.
Nominations are due by Thursday, Oct. 4, in these categories:
- Employee of the Year
- Advocate of the Year
- Professional of the Year
- Educator of the Year
- Employer of the Year
Download nomination forms below. A letter of recommendation is also required.
The Wilson Committee for Persons with Disabilities will hold its annual awards luncheon Thursday, Oct. 18, beginning at noon at the Wilson Country Club. Tickets may be purchased for $10 per person in the City of Wilson’s Human Relations Office, located at 104 Goldsboro Street, Town Hall. This event is open to the public. Seating is limited and tickets do sell out fast.
The theme of this year’s celebration is “A Strong Workforce is an Inclusive Workforce.” This reflects the committee’s dedication to recognizing the contribution made in the Wilson community by the disabled and those that employ them.
Nominations are open to individuals, organizations and businesses whose work exemplifies the national effort to increase the public's awareness of the contributions and skills of American workers with disabilities and the value of employers who hire these citizens. We also take time to recognize those professionals that work each day in the disabilities field, serve as educators and lead the way as advocates for the disabled.
