Support Employment of Individuals With Disabilities
Posted by AMS / Tuesday, January 23, 2018
As an employer in Santa Clarita Valley, AMS has long been committed to hiring individuals with disabilities. Employees and management at AMS know how rewarding it is to work in a diverse environment that includes individuals with disabilities – it is a win-win for all.
After years of steering AMS’s socially aware hiring practices, CEO Ken Wiseman was honored to be selected as Chair (amidst a group of other professionals passionate about the committee’s mission) of the Mayor’s Committee for Employment of Individuals with Disabilities. This nonprofit organization helps local businesses increase their efforts to hire individuals with disabilities.
Coming up soon is an annual event that the Mayor’s Committee has been planning for months; the second annual Educate-Empower-Employ Recognition Luncheon and fundraiser at College of the Canyons. The date is February 22nd, and the time is noon. The meal will be a gourmet luncheon created by students of Culinary Education at the College of the Canyon’s Institute of Culinary Education Facility, located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Valencia 91355.
We encourage businesses in the SCV community to join with AMS and attend this worthwhile and enjoyable event. The Committee’s invitation is extended to senior-level executives, employment professionals and other professionals who provide training and job placement for individuals with disabilities. Companies that hire individuals with disabilities will be recognized at the event and sponsors will also receive recognition.
Funds raised from the luncheon will be used by the Mayor’s Committee in its ongoing work, which ultimately aims to increase the number of individuals with disabilities in the local workforce.
We hope to see you there!!
