ODEP and Kentucky Governor Unveil KY Work Matters Task Force Final Report

Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) Deputy Assistant Secretary Jennifer Sheehy joined Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin on May 15 for the unveiling of the Kentucky Work Matters Task Force final report at a news conference. In collaboration with ODEP’s State Exchange on Employment and Disability (SEED) and its partner, the Council of State Governments, the task force brought together key departments in Kentucky to address barriers to employment and promote workforce inclusion among targeted constituencies, including people with disabilities, foster children, disabled veterans, and others. The governor also signed an Employment First Executive Order, which establishes an advisory council to help implement recommendations from the report.
