Governor’s Committee on Employment for People with Disabilities (GCEPD)

Governor's Committee logo

We promote efforts to achieve equal employment opportunities for Utahns with disabilities.

Core Beliefs

We believe that increased employment for people with disabilities will be successful when:

  • Every individual has access to employment based on their skills, abilities and informed choice.
  • Every individual has the opportunity for training and education to prepare for the workforce.
  • Every individual takes responsibility to attain and maintain employment.
  • Employers take a proactive role to recruit, hire and retain people with disabilities.
  • Innovative approaches and partnerships are continually developed to increase employment opportunities.
