Join the Disability Employment Technical Assistance Center (DETAC) for a webinar showcasing a collaboration between the Texas Workforce Commission Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Valley Association for Independent Living, and Disability Chamber of Commerce Rio Grande Valley (RGV) to increase competitive, integrated employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

The partners work together to adopt innovative strategies to transition people with disabilities out of poverty. The panel will highlight how they leverage each other’s resources for successful employment outcomes, how these strategies include effective relationships with employers, and how they work to support job seekers with disabilities in connecting to employment.
