We’re using this year’s AAIDD media award winning film, “Hearts of Glass,” as a catalyst for conversation about employment and inclusion. Join us for a lively discussion with the filmmaker, characters from documentary and the executive director of Montana’s UCEDD, who served as an advisor during production. The film is about an ambitious small business that combines high-tech local food production and meaningful employment for people with disabilities. You can watch the trailer at https://www.heartsofglassfilm.com/. You can watch the film at https://showandtell.film/watch/aaidd from Friday, 6/19 to Friday, 6/26. So, watch the film and join the conversation… or join the conversation and then watch! While we are pleased to offer this complimentary webinar, please note that participants of this webinar will not be sent a certificate of attendance.
