Did you know that the third Wednesday of every October is Disability Mentoring Day? This day is connected to month-long activities for the National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Today’s episode is about mentoring featuring two dynamic disabled mentors: Yolanda Vargas and Judy Heumann. Both Yolanda and Judy share what mentoring means to them, their experiences mentoring others, and the mentors they had throughout their lives. Intergenerational conversations are so important and I am thankful for this opportunity to learn from both Judy and Yolanda.
