Breaking down barriers with Supported Employment: Janet Mejie 

King County’s Supported Employment Program matches job seekers with developmental disabilities to jobs by identifying efficiencies and unmet needs throughout King County government.

One of the new hires is Janet Mejie, who recently started working in Transit Safety & Training section. “It’s made us more efficient and more effective as a safety staff in general in the Safety office to have this type of backing and support from Janet,” said Michael Marks, Superintendent Transit Safety.

Watch the short video below that highlights Janet in the Supported Employment Program and contact Christina Davidson to learn more about ways you can take advantage of this program.

King County is celebrating Disability Awareness Month in October and recognizing the work that County employees do to serve and support people with disabilities in our community, including the Supported Employment Program. Many divisions have partnered with Christina Davidson, Supported Employment Program Manager, to hire through the Program to meet their business needs. Over the last year, Transit has increased positions in the Supported Employment Program by hiring 5 new employees into various sections. Big thank you to Transit leadership for their commitment in building an inclusive workforce!
