NOD Attends DiversityInc’s Top 50 Gala
DiversityInc’s gala dinner announcing the Top 50 Companies for Diversity, which attracts nearly 1,000 people from leading US employers, featured a new element, courtesy of their CEO Luke Visconti.
In addition to recognizing the numbers of women and racial and ethnic minorities in senior positions, he referenced the disability practices for many in the Top 50. Visconti, who serves as NOD’s vice chairman, also offered a full accounting of “ableism” in his own experience and that of others. It is not an overstatement to say that this addition will assuredly be game changing for our collective efforts to ensure equal employment opportunity for all 29 million working-age people with disabilities in this country.
As in past years, Carol Glazer, President of NOD, had the privilege of announcing the DiversityInc Top Companies for People with Disabilities. Thank you to Luke Visconti and his talented team at DiversityInc for elevating disability in our national consciousness as part of the unfinished business of the civil rights movement.
