Our Mission and Vision
The mission of the Governor's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities is to promote equal employment for all citizens of Vermont by advising the Governor on current issues affecting employment of people with disabilities, and through partnerships between business, government and people with disabilities.
On December 8, 2009, as part of our strategic planning process, the following vision was adopted by the Committee:
"Barrier Free Employment for ALL Vermonters"
