EmpowerCon 2021: October

EmpowerCon is an event where people with disabilities, their families, and other supporters can learn and share everyday skills and resources to live more independent lives. But more than that, it’s a place to be who you are and to have fun. EmpowerCon October 2021 is a virtual event about Employment, which is an important part of Independent Living. You’ll share your Employment Success Stories and we'll all learn strategies for finding and keeping a job. EmpowerCon October 2021 is a celebration! We’ll celebrate an individual and a business who show the world what it means to be independent and accessible as we present the Floyd Stewart Everyday Hero Award and the Access Music City Business Champion Award. And we’ll celebrate people and the diversity that lives within the disability community. EmpowerCon is our place to show up, be seen, and be heard. So, come in your best Zoom comfy clothes, your Cosplay, your Drag, or whatever makes you feel your best. Come with your signs, Come with your ideas. Come with your friends. Come and make new friends. Y’all come!
