Governor’s Weekly Message: Advancing Employment Opportunities for Individuals of All Abilities

Wilmington, DE – In a guest weekly message, Department of Health and Social Services Secretary Rita Landgraf discusses the Markell Administration’s efforts to create employment opportunities for people of all abilities through initiatives like the Pathways to Employment program, and thanks employers who embrace the skills and talents of all of our people.

“Last week, Governor Markell and I joined young people with disabilities, their parents and advocates as we celebrated the success of Pathways to Employment. Pathways supports young people age 14 to 25 as they make their transition from school to the world of work,” Secretary Landgraf said. “As Governor Markell said last week, hiring people with disabilities isn’t about charity. It’s about maximizing everyone’s gifts and talents. That’s why you have our commitment to keep advancing employment opportunities for all individuals with disabilities as we keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
