Director, Hillsboro Public Library
"With our mission at the library, for everyone, we feel it is essential for all members of our community to be represented at the library, and to have the opportunity for our community to engage with one another. But even beyond that larger mission, the benefits we have seen from having supported employment opportunities is so impactful. The pleasure of helping someone succeed in what might be their first true job,and the joy and excitement that is shared with that employee's colleagues is wonderful. I'm so glad we started down the supported employment path, and each year, we keep hoping to add additional opportunities!”

Diversity is both meaningful and practical. Practicing diversity has a positive outcome for your team and for the world.
