Today, by executive order of Mayor Tim Keller, Albuquerque celebrated “Inclusive Hiring Day”. Our friends at Mandy’s Farm invited me to share with them a video about my experience hiring an employee with a disability. I was delighted to see the video posted today on their social media accounts:
In addition to the Little Green Bucket video, they spotlighted several other local businesses that share our hiring values, and they also put together this very informative set of graphics:
As I mentioned in the video, I didn’t set out to hire someone with a disability — I stumbled into the idea thanks to Mandy’s Farm’s own staff. But it’s been an overwhelmingly positive experience for my business, and a life-changing one for me and my family. I dearly hope that today’s effort to educate the public about inclusive hiring will lead more Albuquerque businesses to start down this path.
