Disability Mentoring Day Offers Job-shadowing Opportunity

Vanderbilt employees are being sought to mentor individuals with disabilities by allowing them to job shadow for a day.

The event is part of a national job shadow and career exploration program designed to link students and jobseekers with disabilities to employers interested in fostering a more diverse work culture and/or hiring people with disabilities.
