Annual Disability Employment Awards today

Friday, November 8, 2019 by Chad Swiatecki

The Mayor’s Committee for People With Disabilities will hold its Annual Disability Employment Awards today at City Hall. The event, which starts at 6 p.m., aims to promote the full employment of Austin residents with disabilities and will recognize businesses that have demonstrated positive employment practices in that community. Recipients include Convo Relay for providing video relay and other communication solutions for the deaf; Scan Mailboxes for committing to hiring people with disabilities at every opportunity; Dr. Beth Hamilton for her work advocating for the deaf and hearing impaired communities; Texas School for the Deaf CEO Claire Bugen for her work in the national Education of Deaf Students program; and Tracey and Steve Brown, promoting athletics and other inclusion activities for children with disabilities. The awards ceremony is free and open to the public.
