2019 TASH Conference
Attending this event?
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together our constituents to share resources and success stories, learn about field-driven best practices, and network within a community engaged in shared values. The Conference is attended by passionate leaders, experts, and advocates from every corner of the disability community. Conference attendees are influential in their fields and communities, and play an important role in the provision of services and supports for the millions of individuals and organizations around the world; and include professors and researchers from leading institutions; those involved in local, state, and federal governments and public policy; special and general educators, and school administrators; self-advocates, adult service providers; students, family members, and many others.  This year’s conference theme, Building Diverse and Inclusive Communities, reminds us that equity, opportunity, and inclusion relies on the input of broad perspectives and experiences.

Diverse and Inclusive Communities demand systems change that guarantee Competitive Integrated Employment (CIE) is the expectation and accessible to all. The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) has supported state systems change efforts through its Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program (EFSLMP) and Visionary Opportunities to Increase Competitive Integrated Employment (VOICE) initiatives since 2012. This session will give an overview of ODEP's latest milestones, initiatives, and resources to build capacity to increase competitive integrated employment for individuals with disabilities, and give examples of ways advocates can get involved at the national, state, and local levels to increase employment opportunities.
