What is getAwareLive?

It’s an annual event, hosted by Alliance Enterprises, that brings together professionals in the vocational rehabilitation (VR), disability advocacy, workforce and technology industries.

Participants are informed and inspired by keynote speeches, training sessions and knowledge sharing among peers. If you’re in the workforce or the VR community you won’t want to miss this unique gathering of leaders and experts.

Who is hosting the event?

Alliance Enterprises is a fun little Inc. 5000 technology company in the Seattle area that’s been around for more than 30 years. We’re passionate about the work we do because we know it makes a huge difference in people’s lives who we really care about.

We provide the market-leading software program, called Aware, to vocational rehabilitation state agencies around the country. Aware is used by 40 state agencies to manage case-loads.

In addition, the event will be chock-full of relevant training sessions that will increase your understanding of essential topics like WIOA and evolving technology solutions in the industry. You’ll return to work after this event much smarter and more efficient.
