APSE Awarded Leadership for Innovative Employment Policy Initiative

Pathways to Employment will contract with APSE in conjunction with Minnesota APSE, the state chapter, to develop leadership and dialogue facilitation around employment policy that will result in the increased employment of Minnesotans with disabilities. The mission of Pathways to Employment is to increase competitive employment of people with disabilities and meet Minnesota’s workforce needs by bringing together people with disabilities, employers, businesses, government and providers. Pathways to Employment is a partnership of the Minnesota Department of Human Services, Disability Services Division, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development and the Minnesota State Council on Disability.

MNTAT will work in close collaboration with the Minnesota Employment Policy Initiative (MEPI) in proposing policy that supports the full employment of Minnesotans with disabilities.
