Grizzard, Roy

  • “America's employers benefit when they provide opportunities for Americans with disabilities to work. A winning team will include people with disabilities.”

    Roy Grizzard, Former Assistant Secretary of Labor
    for Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP)

  • “Inadequate transportation can inhibit employment for all people, but is an even greater barrier to people with disabilities ... reliable transportation services to and from work is a key component of increased employment opportunities for people with disabilities.”

    Dr. Roy Grizzard, Assistant Secretary of Labor
    Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).

  • “We in America and in the United States Department of Labor place the highest value on the premise that people with disabilities are able to work. We agree with you, as stated in the OECD policy conclusions, that the term 'disabled' should no longer be automatically equated with 'unable to work.' ”

    Dr. Roy Grizzard, Assistant Secretary of Labor
    Address at the International Forum on Disabilities in Vienna, Austria
    March 6-7, 2003
