We hosted Sara Murphy from TransCen in May 2023 and presented on how to identify business needs and negotiate customised positions for young job seekers with disability.

TransCen is a not-for-profit organisation based in the USA dedicated to improving education and employment success of youth people with disability.

Sara is a Subject Matter Expert for the Federal Department of Labor’s Office of Disability and Employment Policy (ODEP) and is supporting state agencies and providers across the country with system and service transformation efforts. She provides technical assistance and consultation to state agencies and providers in capacity building in effective practice, system/provider transformation, school-to-work transition and employer engagement.
