“Embracing Inclusion: People With Disabilities Enriching the Workforce” is a collection of photographs and profiles of people with a disability as they see themselves in the workplace. On 96 pages of glossy, four-color print, personal stories are shared to offer a visual composition demonstrating that those with a disability in the workplace need not be disabled. Introduced by Dr. Temple Grandin, President George H. Bush, Senator Tom Harkin (retired) and actor Robert David Hall all share their thoughts on the employment of people with disabilities.
This book was created as a collaboration with Marc Goldman, founder and owner of the Damon Brooks Associates. This was dream of Marc’s for thirty years. Damon Brooks Associates has a 27-year history of being recognized as the only speaker and performing arts bureau that represents those with a disability. In 1985 DBA founder and owner Marc Goldman began his successful career of matching Hollywood and sports celebrities with non-profit organizations. It was at a Hollywood fundraiser that a well-known personality brought an unknown comedian to Marc’s attention. What he did not know was that the comedian had a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy.
