Summary of our March 7, 2017 Indy BLN Meeting:
The March 7, 2017 Indy BLN meeting focused on “Connecting Employers with Job Candidates with Disabilities.”
Angie Vandersteen and Jonie Fairbanks, from Tangram led a dynamic presentation to members on the fast growing Workforce Accelerator that you can view at workforceaccelerator.com. This tool is a Job Matching database that enables employers to find applicants with disabilities who meet their needs and helps people with disabilities find employers wanting their skill sets. Attached are two documents that explain more; one is a flyer and the other is a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the Accelerator. Anyone interested in using this resource should contact Angie at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 317.968.9035.
