Commerce Recognized for Utilizing State ASAP Program

October 6, 2022

Last week the Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities presented the Department of Commerce with an award for our use of the Alternative State Application (ASAP) Program. This is a state sponsored HR program that allows individuals with disabilities to receive a non-competitive review of their application for employment.  

Since a recent hire in DOPL participated in the program, Dave Taylor and Alyson Pettley accepted the award on the department’s behalf. At the awards ceremony, a video featuring DOPL director Mark Steinagel explained the program, why we participate as a department and how we continually strive to create a culture of inclusivity at Commerce.
