Upcoming Meetings

October meeting:
Special Touch Bakery

WEDNESDAY, October 25th 4:30-6:00pm
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month!

With conversations at the national Conscious Capitalism conference from Greyston Bakery about Open Hiring, this fall Conscious Capitalism ROC will explore the theme of inclusion and how conscious businesses in Rochester can be part of the solution for inclusive growth.

Additionally, reflecting the important role that different perspectives play in workforce success, October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month celebrating the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.

For our October meeting, we’ll get the first public look at the new Special Touch Bakery a day after the Grand Opening! Founded in 1982, Special Touch Bakery was launched by Holy Childhood as a means to train and employ people with intellectual and developmental disabilities alongside their non-disabled peers. At Special Touch, a baker is a baker– they celebrate all abilities! Additionally, Holy Childhood was recently honored as a 2017 ETHIE Award winner for their ethical culture!

Specially selected attendees will have an opportunity to become Special Touch Bakers for a day, trying their hand at the baking craft, guided by Special Touch Bakery artisans!
RSVP Here!
