Hearts of Glass: A Conversation About Cultivating Inclusion, Employment and Opportunity
Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, Vocational Rehabilitation and Blind Services and the Rural Institute are excited to bring you the award-winning Hearts of Glass documentary and an engaging panel discussion!
The documentary is a story of employment possibilities and community impact that is resonating with employers, job seekers, family members and service providers.
The event will open with a special welcome by the Montana Director of the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) Adam Meier, and then there will be an interactive panel featuring speakers from the film, presenting organizations, and community partners.
Hearts of Glass follows the first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest (VH) based in Jackson, Wyoming — a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that provides meaningful, inclusive employment for people with disabilities. The documentary weaves the story of VH’s launch with the personal journeys of employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate portrait of innovation, inclusion and impact.
