Pittsburgh, 10.10.14 – Select International, a global employee assessment and hiring solutions provider, will join other Pittsburgh employers by participating in Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) on October 15, 2014. This is the third year Select International has participated.
The program, which began in 1999 as National Disability Mentoring Day, gives students with disabilities the opportunity to visit with an employer for a day. Held on the third Wednesday of October, the international event is hosted by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), in collaboration with the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). AAPD will launch the national marking of Disability Mentoring Day 2014 in Pittsburgh. In a news release announcing the city’s selection, the AAPD said the county’s commitment to economic equality is among the reasons it selected Pittsburgh for the launch.
