Reflecting a commitment to a robust and competitive American labor force, the 2018 National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme is “America’s Workforce – Empowering All!” Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.
The Philadelphia “Employment 1st, Employment NOW!” Steering Committee is once again celebrating this event with a month of employment success stories. Each day we will be posting another success story about someone who is contributing to their community through employment. For those who have requested to receive our employment announcements, you will receive the link to the story in your mailbox. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the successes of people with disabilities working in our communities!
Over 20 Years at UA Grant Plaza 9!
October 5 – Darnell
Darnell, aka “Donny”, works at UA Grant Plaza 9. He has worked at this movie theater for 20+ years. Donny is a ticket agent. Everyone who comes into the theater knows Donny and loves his personality. He gets along with all of his co-workers. Donny has been trained at the ticket counter, but after 20+ years on-the-job, he still has his eyes on advancement. He now wants to apply for the assistant manager position at the movie theater. Best of luck, Donny!
