GCDE Employer Awards

Are you an inclusive employer?

Do you value access and opportunity for people with disabilities? Do you know someone who does?

The Governor’s Committee on Disability Issues & Employment (GCDE) is now seeking nominations for the 2021 Washington State Governor’s Employer Awards, recognizing excellence in recruiting, hiring and advancing employees with disabilities.

The GCDE presents these annual awards as part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month. This year’s theme is America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion. The awards will be presented during a virtual event on Oct. 26 from 11 a.m. to – 1 p.m.

We need your help to recognize the best organizations, the best people, and the best leaders who support employees with disabilities! Nominate yourself, other businesses or leaders in the community today.
