Gov. Jack Markell is hosting a roundtable discussion in Washington on employing people with disabilities.
Wednesday's conference is part of an initiative Markell has proposed for his one-year term as the new chairman of the National Governors Association.
Markell will join South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and NGA executive director Dan Crippen in leading a conversation to identify promising state and business practices for employing the disabled and develop a set of state policy options.
The roundtable will bring together experts from government, academia, and business to frame the issues around employment for individuals with disabilities.
