Exclusive to the NOD Corporate Leadership Council!


June 13th, 11:00 – 2:00 PM ET | Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice, New York, NY

Building a disability inclusive workplace doesn’t happen overnight, and it goes beyond adopting a few policies. The companies doing this best are changing and evolving their culture. Through NOD’s Spring Learning Series, NOD Corporate Leadership Council members will learn how to lead a sea change to embed disability inclusion into existing D&I values, leading to a corporate culture that can attract, retain, and engage diverse talent.

By closing the trust gap, top companies are fostering environments where employees can thrive while attracting the best talent, especially people with disabilities. How does your organization measure up?

Join us for an Executive Luncheon as we hear from companies that have successfully built or restored trust in the workplace. Using case studies and new research findings, you will learn how to create a roadmap to close your company’s own trust gap, improve self-ID rates and attract talent with disabilities.
