Professional headshot of Dawn Ingalls.Hey everyone! I’m Dawn Ingalls, Talent Development Consultant at Avera Health. For the past several years, I’ve had the privilege of serving as a Board Member with Employment Disability Resources. I’m deeply passionate about this organization because it offers vital employment resources for both employers and individuals with disabilities.

Some disabilities, like mental health conditions, might not be immediately visible. With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, EDR plays a crucial role in helping employers understand the needs of individuals with mental health disabilities. I firmly believe that with proper education and awareness, we can break down barriers and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges in the workplace. I’m committed to continuing my service with this incredible organization and promoting the
employment of people with disabilities.
