2016 Employment First Summit  Trailblazing:  Charting Our Employment Path

Innovating with the Wichita Nexus/BLN
Bob Hull and Peter Daniels
Using a small grant from the Kansas Health Foundation, Robert Hull of the Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation is working to adapt the innovations of the Greater Kansas City Employment Nexus to conditions in Kansas. The “Nexus idea” brings together disability employment agencies and employers in a closer cooperation to assist more people to find work. Collaborating in this effort is the Sedgwick County Business Leadership Network.

Robert (“Bob”) Hull has been Vice President for Research at the Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation since 1998. He has managed a number of federal and state research and demonstration grant programs. Since 2013 he has served on the Kansas Employment First Commission.
