On Wednesday, October 5, The City of Pittsburgh hosted a half-day training for city employees hosting high school students with disabilities for Disability Mentoring Day, a national effort by the American Association for People with Disabilities to support career development and hands-on career development for students with disabilities. At the training, Cori Frazer presented on a panel of disabled adults to answer questions and help City employees prepare to host a student in their workplaces. In attendance were City employees in a variety of vocations, from administrative assistants to forensic specialists. After the panel, the training split up into small groups where people with disabilities and professionals who work with people with disabilities discussed expectations and ideas for the event with city employees.
