On Friday, November 13th, AADAPT members promoted SI internships, fellowships, and employment opportunities at the 2015 Careers and the disABLED Career Expo at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC. Edith Tudah-Torboh, Office of Human Resources; Shahin Nemazee, Office of Equal Opportunity and Minority Affairs; Ashley-Terrell-Rea, Accessibility Program; and Karen Carter, Office of Fellowships and Internships met with hundreds of individuals interested in academic appointments and jobs at the Smithsonian. Project SEARCH interns placed at SI were also in attendance, including OFI intern, Adrian Forsythe, who noted, “Being at the Career Fair opened my eyes to all [the career opportunities] in the D.C. area.” Smithsonian and AADAPT are proudly committed to increasing diversity at SI in all forms and it was great to work alongside so many terrific organizations equally dedicated to this important mission.
