Experience the Employment Connection Norristown began at 8:30 a.m. on November 1st, 2017. Professionals who serve Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties met at the Plymouth Country Club to discuss opportunities for interagency collaboration amongst those who work to assist individuals with disabilities in obtaining meaningful, integrative employment.
Throughout the training, participants worked in teams to complete a number of activities. In the afternoon, the group split into two breakout sessions—one made up of agency leaders and one made up of team members who worked together on an individual’s case.
Participants from both sessions were encouraged by the collaboration they’d experienced. Those who attended the Leadership Session expressed the need for everyone to work together in the future. Those who attended the Team-Based Collaboration session expressed their appreciation for the team-based approach, as each member brought different knowledge, perspectives, resources, and backgrounds to the group.
We are excited for the collaborative opportunities Experience the Employment Connection has created across the state!
