Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)

September 04, 2014

Beginning in September, supported by a grant from The HSC Foundation, AAPD will coordinate a monthly networking series called the Youth Transitions Collaborative Emerging Leaders Program. The disability-rights community in Washington, DC has a wealth of young, emerging professionals in academics, policy think tanks, non-profits, law firms, and federal and local government agencies. The goal of the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is to create a monthly meeting for young disability rights advocates to expand their professional networks and interact with established professionals at the National Youth Transitions Center. The meetings will be tailored toward the younger community through a happy hour concept of networking with each other and hearing from a prominent disability-rights advocate on career advice and/or expert analysis of a current event directly related to the disability community. The first meeting will take place on September 30, 2014. For additional information on the program, please email Adam Abosedra at [email protected].  To learn more and/or RSVP, please see: www.facebook.com/events/1465076710421316/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming.
