Event Recap: Virtual Disability Inclusion Opportunity Summit

In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), Disability:IN Chicagoland hosted its first Virtual Disability Inclusion Opportunity Summit throughout the first two weeks of October. The event series attracted 375 registrants for its discussions on:

  • Recruiting, Hiring & Accommodating Neurodiverse Workers;
  • The Intersections of Race & Disability Inclusion;
  • Transitioning the Workplace into a ‘New Normal’ Amid the COVID 19 Pandemic; &
  • Increasing E/BRG Collaboration by Understanding the Power of Identity.

As part of a collaboration with the Disability:IN Wisconsin affiliate, Chicagoland partners were also invited to join Wisconsin’s virtual Ability Summit sessions in last two weeks of the month at a discounted member rate. Recordings of all eight sessions are available to Disability:IN Chicagoland partners.
