INclusion matters

Our bags are packed. We’re ready to engage with more than 1,500 attendees and industry peers at the Annual Disability:IN Conference & Expo in #Chicago next week.

The theme for the 22nd Annual Conference July 15-18 is IN For INclusion and will include the following educational tracks:

-         Workplace

-         Supply Chain

-         Global

-         Technology

-         NextGen Talent Accelerator

According to @USDOL May 2019 Disability Employment Statistics, labor force participation includes:

-         20.6% - number of Americans with disabilities

-         68.5% - number of Americans without disabilities

-         6.3% - number of Americans with disabilities who are unemployed

-         3.3% - number of Americans without disabilities who are unemployed

Go to to review, @BLS_gov “Labor force characteristics of people with a disability,” by Janie-Lynn Kang, Megan Dunn and Andrew Blank.

@DisabilityIN is actively working to empower companies to hire its NextGen Leaders. They are recent graduates, graduate students and seniors representing a range of disciplines including, STEM, business and finance looking for immediate employment opportunities. To gain hands-on experience through internships, there will be juniors, sophomores and freshmen representing colleges and universities throughout the U.S.

Stop by Booth #20 to see how we source for diversity using DirectSource, a nationwide compliance hiring accelerator.

With a full itinerary ahead of us, we’re ready to actively listen and engage with industry experts on how to best include #peoplewithdisabilities in the workplace. Next stop: #DowntownChicago.
