Work Without Limits is so pleased with how well our first virtual and 8th Annual #RaiseTheBarHIRE2020 Conference went!
It was spectacular to see so many people engaged in our mission of advancing the employment of people with disabilities so that it is equal to that of people without disabilities. Thank you all and can't wait to do it again next year!
What our attendees are saying...
"Very well organized, seamless execution!!!"
"As a presenter in 2 different sessions, I was very impressed with the level of clear communication, organization and support available throughout the process. I look forward to future collaborations."
"The keynote speaker was amazing, and really set the tone for the rest of the event."
"It was thoughtfully put together. It was my first time using the hub. It was easy to learn and navigate. Also, I appreciated the detailed description of each speaker and what they were wearing."
For the past seven years Work Without Limits has been proud to provide this one-day conference featuring prominent national keynote speakers, educational sessions, exhibitors, networking opportunities and sharing of best practices on advancing the employment of people with disabilities.
This conference is in October in recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month. It is the largest disability inclusion conference in New England.
