The Employment Systems Change Coalition of Kansas represents multiple agencies throughout Kansas who work together across fields of disability to support employment systems change. The primary goal is to not only see more people employed, but to address systematic barriers to employment for persons with disabilities. Presenters will discuss the project and provide updates regarding the groups efforts and plans for recommendations to support change.
