State Legislators and government agencies will host the “Empowering All Abilities” Job Fair on Oct. 30 at the State Capitol, a reverse job fair for persons with developmental disabilities. 

During the fair, each job seeker will have a table set up with a presentation board that showcases their interests, strengths and abilities. Prospective employers will visit each job seeker’s booth. There will be a conference room/space set up for employers to conduct on-site job interviews.

First Lady Dawn Amano-Ige and members of the host committee will address the prospective employers at the Empowering All Abilities Talk at 9 a.m. More than 100 employers/HR professionals and 50 job seekers are confirmed for this inaugural collaborative job fair.

The Legislative host committee includes Senators Josh Green, Roslyn H. Baker, Mike Gabbard, and Russell E. Ruderman, and Representatives Lynn DeCoite, Della Au Belatti, Beth Fukumoto, Joy San Buenaventura, Lauren Matsumoto and John Mizuno.
