Disability Inclusion for Better Business

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can engaging people with disabilities help your bottom line? Outdated perceptions and communication gaps alienate this group; however, the global population has crossed one billion and it's estimated that 1 in 4 of today's 20 year-olds will have a disability before they retire. Are you prepared to engage a customer with a disability? What happens when a prospective employee has a disability? People with disabilities are underserved, yet they are a loyal and growing consumer base. Understand how to respect and integrate people with disabilities to not only enhance your business, but expand your own horizons. It's not just the right thing to do, it's an investment in your future success.
