Speaker:  Kathy Martinez

Topic:  Dispelling myths about people with disabilities in the workplace and uncovering hidden treasures in diverse abilities. 

Kathy Martinez is senior vice president of Disability Market Segment & Strategy for Wells Fargo where she works to expand the company’s capabilities and programs dedicated to serving customers with disabilities and their families.

Martinez is the former assistant secretary of the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) for the U.S. Department of Labor. She led ODEP in putting policy priorities into practice through several innovative grant programs. These include Add Us In, through which a nationwide consortia worked to increase the capacity of small businesses to employ people with disabilities. The grant program also included the Employment First State Leadership Mentor Program, through which several states received support to promote community-based, integrated employment as the primary outcome for people with significant disabilities.

A graduate of San Francisco State University, Martinez speaks and publishes on a wide array of topics related to disability employment, including the emergence of disability as an essential component of workplace diversity and inclusion and the importance of expectation in ensuring youth with disabilities grow up with an assumption of work—a topic on which Martinez, who herself was born blind, offers compelling and personal perspective.

Lunch will be provided at no charge for members. $20 for guests and non-members. Everyone is welcome!

Please note: Visitors will need to check in at the security gate and provide a photo ID. 

Registration will be open until Wednesday May 10th. 
We look forward to networking with you!!
