Welcome to the Governor's Committee on the Employment of People with Disabilities (GCEPD).

We are a mandated group of volunteers with a broad range of personal and professional experience who are passionate about employment opportunities for all.

Our mission is to:

  1. Advise the Governor on current issues pertaining to the employment of people with disabilities in our State;
  2. Promote relationships among business, government, and service providers to expand opportunities for the employment of people with disabilities;
  3. Increase awareness of the abundant talent of an underutilized pool of valuable potential employees; and,
  4. Inform employers about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities and of the availability of assistive technologies for supporting successful employment.

Want to join the GCEPD?  Contact Eileen Casey, Executive Coordinator at eileen.casey@vermont.gov or by phone at 802-238-4947 

Would you like a copy of our quarterly, free digital newsletter, Abilities?  It has interesting articles about the success of people with disabilities and important legislative and regulatory changes that could affect people with disabilities.  If you are interested in receiving this, send an email to eileen.casey@vermont.gov with the subject line "Abilities."  We will do the rest.
