UCP Oregon : AbilityAware Business Awards
On the evening of Thursday, October 24, 2019 at the Armory in Downtown Portland, UCP Oregon will celebrate businesses that are committed to employing Oregonians who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. There will be special recognition for employers who have excelled in leadership and diversifying their workplaces.
An AbilityAware employer is a community-focused business, committed to advancing employment opportunities for people with disabilities, and in turn cultivating a strong local economy. Employers have earned this designation and can proudly display the AbilityAware plaque and signage in their workplace.
