USCIB and ILO to Host Event on Promoting Disability Inclusion

USCIB has teamed up with the ILO Global Business and Disability Network (GBDN) to host an event in Washington DC for business leaders, “Promoting disability inclusion globally” on June 20 with the aim of supporting companies in increasing their opportunities to promote disability inclusion globally. The event will be hosted by USCIB’s member AT&T and will feature speakers from Deloitte and other USCIB member companies.

The GBDN is a network of multinational enterprises, employers’ organizations, business networks and disabled persons’ organizations who share the conviction that people with disabilities have talents and skills that can enhance virtually any business. The ILO believes ‘Disability Inclusion makes good business sense’.

The event was also featured in a Huffington Post article, “Helping U.S. Based Corporations Join the Global Disability Inclusion Conversations.”
