Hello. This is Joe Melillo. I am the National Employment & Business Relations Specialist with Helen Keller Services. We’re inviting you to our 4th annual National Disability Employment Awareness Month event on October 4th at 2 pm ET. We have an amazing panel of industry leaders, some with dual sensory loss, discussing accessibility and inclusion in the workplace. This year, we’re looking forward to an in-depth discussion about the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and disability inclusion. Nearly 700 vocational services and business professionals registered for the event last year. This is a must-attend event for anyone passionate and interested in accessibility, universal design, and disability inclusion in the workplace. Please visit HelenKeller.org/NDEAM2023 where you can find more information and register. I look forward to seeing you there. [end transcript]
