Jonathan Taylor


My involvement in the disability community began about 10 years ago at TJ Maxx in Conway, AR. I was an operations manager, and staffing was a major part of my job. In 2018 I was invited to join the Arkansas State Rehabilitation Council (SRC), where I currently serve as Co-Chair. I’m Co-Chair for Disability: IN Arkansas as well. In August 2021 Jon began his career transition to Executive Director of the Arkansas Governors Council on Developmental Disabilities. As Executive Director I can share what I’ve learned about competitive, integrated employment with business on a higher level. And more importantly, I have a larger platform to share my most important lesson: It’s not “Them” and “Us”. It’s just us.
