FULL ACCESS STUDENT SUMMIT FOR CAREER EXPLORATION

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES (COSD)

The FULL ACCESS Student Summit is a semiannual regional event that brings together up to 60 students / graduates with disabilities to meet with 11 major national employers for two half-days of networking. At the Student Summit, attendees learn about disclosure from the keynote speaker’s one-woman show of her own lived experience as a person with a mental illness, followed by a smaller breakout sessions to discuss the students’ own experiences with disclosure. The event culminates with three one-hour networking sessions to allow students to ask questions of employers; and enlighten the students on what they can do to make themselves more marketable for employment.
