Supporting Self-Employment for Entrepreneurs with Disabilities: Family Perspectives

Webinar Date: February 13, 2024   |   Time: 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm ET


On February 13, 2024, nearly 500 participants joined the Administration on Disabilities (AoD) Disability Employment Technical Assistance Center (DETAC) for our February 2024 National Community of Practice (CoP) webinar. This event highlighted the importance of family support for people with disabilities who own their own businesses. We began with a brief recap of the work DETAC has done to advance self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities. Then, Sue Babin from the Rhode Island Developmental Disabilities Council (RIDDC) facilitated a panel session featuring three family members of entrepreneurs with disabilities. The panelists offered their perspectives on how to best support loved ones with disabilities who have goals of owning their own business.
