EMPOWER Award Nominations

We are seeking nominations for our EMPOWER award. The EMPOWER Award (Employers Making Positions Open & Within Employee Reach) is offered to any Genesee County organization for outstanding achievement in improving employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, October 2 at 5 PM. Nominate a Genesee County business today at disnetwork.org/empower

Inspired by former TDN CEO, Mike Zelley, this EMPOWER award spotlights an employer who may have initially thought they were taking a risk on hiring a person(s) with a disability; yet, found the benefits of a diverse, dependable workplace not only rewarding, but also an enriching opportunity. Zelley fully embraces the concept of empowering others through advocating at the local, state, and national level for equal access; as well as his aptitude to see everyone’s abilities.
