"Sourcing Diversity: Disabling Myths and Discovering Talent"
Do individuals with disabilities have more work place accidents? Are they more likely to be sick or miss work due to disability related illnesses? This presentation will address these and other myths that negatively influence employer perceptions of job seekers with disabilities. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of who is included in the disability population, the advantages of diversifying your workforce, and the best ways to source employees.

Our Presenter: Josh Welhener, Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities
Josh has been working with individuals with disabilities for over 15 years. He started working with transition age youth (14-22) in in-school work programs before transferring to the Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities. He currently serves as a Transition Coordinator where he works closely with Greene County high schools and the business community. Josh has earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Urban Affairs from Wright State University and a Master’s degree in Secondary Special Education and Transition Services from George Washington University.
