Welcome to the Governor's Committee on the Employment of People with Disabilities (GCEPD). The current GCEPD Executive Coordinator is Cheryl Lancaster. She may be contacted at Cheryl.Lancaster@vermont.gov
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:
- Advise the Governor on current issues pertaining to the employment of people with disabilities in our State;
- Promote relationships among business, government, and service providers to expand opportunities for the employment of people with disabilities;
- Increase awareness of the abundant talent of an underutilized pool of valuable potential employees; and,
- Inform employers about the benefits of hiring people with disabilities and of the availability of assistive technologies for supporting successful employment.
