Georgetown University Conference on Employment of People with Disabilities

Along with two other Georgetown alumni, friends and mentors, John D. Kemp (’71) and Mike Marshall (’95, ’05), I co-hosted the 3rd Georgetown University Conference on Employment of People with Disabilities on November 22 at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, DC. This conference examined the challenges and opportunities in the area of employment of people with disabilities and allow Georgetown University the opportunity to recognize individuals who have contributed to greater freedom and independence for people with disabilities over the past two decades.

John, Mike and I were thrilled to present the Georgetown University Human Spirit Award to Thomas J. Donohue, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Randy Lewis, former Senior Vice President of Walgreens. The group was delighted to have Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry serve as the Master of Ceremonies and guide the conference along to the three expert panels that focused on Information and Communication Technology, Disability Employment Policy and Law and Wounded Warriors and Work.

Thank you to Georgetown University, our award recipients, sponsors, expert panelists and everyone that attended for making this conference as successful as it was!
