He has won or finished very high in numerous competitions, and has been recognized for outstanding accomplishments. Currently a student at the University of Louisville, he uses his musical talent as member of the school marching band, along with his father who joins him as the marching part of the “Hughes team” on the field. He has been featured on ESPN, ABC-TV, Oprah, CBS-TV, FOX-TV, CSTV, People Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and many, many other venues.

Winners’ Circle KEYNOTES Opening Keynote “From Raymond’s Room” Dale DiLeo Thirty years ago, as a young man working at a facility for children with autism, Dale DiLeo was shown a tiny, hot and smelly bedroom. Reserved for up to four young men with autism, this room was locked—from the outside—all night long. It was named after Raymond, the room’s perennial resident. This is the backdrop for Dale’s highly acclaimed book, Raymond’s Room – a challenging look at how today people with disabilities are still locked away from the rest of society - not necessarily housed in rooms like Raymond’s but “placed” by a public monopoly unwilling to change. Dale’s talk is a highly engaging presentation of the obstacles outlined in the book and strategies to address the full inclusion of people with disabilities in our communities as neighbors, friends, co-workers, and classmates. DiLeo is a widely sought-after speaker, writer, and consultant, and wellknown advocate for people with disabilities. An early leader in the SE movement, he is the Past-President of the APSE Board, the lead author of our highly respected Ethical Guidelines in Supported Employment, has written numerous books and manuals, and is recognized for innovative trainings, including web courses on SE and transition.

Closing Keynote “If Everybody is Already Doing it How Come It Never Gets Done?” Joe Marrone Joe Marrone receives rave reviews for a tough message delivered with energy and enthusiasm, sprinkled with more than a touch of humor. We are pleased to introduce him to the APSE conference as the closing keynote speaker. He is a Senior Program Manager for Public Policy at the Institute for Community Inclusion (ICI)/ UMASS BOSTON and is also Director of Training/ TA for the RRTC on Vocational Rehabilitation Best Practices based at ICI. A member of the National Board of Directors of the US Psychiatric Rehabilitation Assn, the editorial boards of both the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal and the American Journal of Psychiatric Rehabilitation, he has consulted, trained, & lectured in 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico, Asia, and Europe. Mr. Marrone is currently most involved in projects related to national technical assistance and keynote presentations on policy and programmatic design issues related to generic and specialized employment services for people with disabilities. He has over 30 years direct service/administrative experience in delivering rehabilitation services and in community mental health.

Keynote “Diversity in the Workplace” Dr. Shirley Davis As Director of Diversity Initiatives for the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), Shirley Davis acts as the “thought leader” for her organization on global diversity issues. With more than 15 years of experience in Human Resources, Organizational & Leadership Development and Diversity Management, she has provided leadership in Training & Education, Leadership Development, Performance Management, Recruiting, Change Management, Strategic Planning and Global Diversity. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Pre-Law, a Master’s Degree in Human Resources Management, and a Ph.D. in Business and Organization Management.

She also worked in the banking industry for 10 years. She travels across the country and internationally, speaking to business and community leaders, corporate executives and other professionals. She’s a former Ms. American United States, Miss District of Columbia and Ms. Oklahoma. In a very engaging manner, Dr. Davis will share with the conference attendees as keynote speaker on Day Two the latest in diversity research as well as national and local cutting edge trends in workplace diversity.
