Interagency Committee on Employees with Disabilities Programs

images/bd_tabtriangle_section.gif (80 bytes)

Current ICED Programs

In fulfillment of its mission, the Committee conducts an Awards Program for public and private entities around the state and an Internship Program for Students with Disabilities.

Awards Program

Each year the Committee hosts an Awards Ceremony and Reception to honor individuals and organizations that have promoted independence and civil rights for people with disabilities. Award categories include Employee, Agency, Legislator, Nonprofit organization, the Media, and Advocate.

Internship Program

In 1999 the Committee created an Internship Program for Students with Disabilities to provide work experience for students that have experienced difficulty in entering the work force. This program also aids in increasing the diversity of state agencies.

Students with active rehabilitation cases are recruited statewide. Both state agencies and the student interns with disabilities have benefited from this program. Several students have gained permanent employment with state agencies following their internships, and attitudinal barriers to the employment of people with disabilities have lessened as a result of agencies learning first-hand what people with disabilities can do.
