The Inclusion Connection, a non-profit promoting inclusive Live Learn Work & Play for people with disabilities, hosted an event titled, “Workforce shortage? Why not inclusion?” at the University of Northern Iowa. The program featured Norman Kunc, a professional speaker and advocate for those with disabilities, who just happens to have cerebral palsy. He is known internationally as a powerhouse disabilities advocate.
Norman delivered an impactful message describing the advantages of hiring someone with disabilities and, also, words of wisdom for people with disabilities trying to make it in this world. His words were followed by two local citizens with disabilities who have found employers who will use their talents and skills in the workplace. They offered words of advice to those with disabilities seeking a fitting vocation.
