Think Employment! Summit

Our annual regional summits bring together individuals with disabilities, family members, educators, providers, vocational rehabilitation professionals, and employers with the goal of sharing best practices and building community partnerships to improve employment outcomes for Tennesseans with disabilities. They are a partnership among UT CLEE, the Knoxville Area Employment Consortium, UTHSC Center for Developmental Disabilities, Vanderbilt University, and the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center. The first regional summit was held on December 3, 2019 in Knoxville. We are currently planning additional regional summits. Check back here for updates! In the meantime, check out the program and presentations from our Knoxville Summit.
