NOD President Carol Glazer Recognized as One of Women’s eNews 21st Century Honorees for 2022
NEW YORK, NY (September 20, 2022) – National Organization on Disability (NOD) President Carol Glazer was named one of Women’s eNews ‘21 Leaders for the 21st Century’ honorees for 2022 for championing disability-inclusive diversity in the workplace, marketplace, and communities. Ms. Glazer, along with 20 other honorees, will be recognized at an Awards Gala on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2002, at The United Nations in New York City from 10am – 3pm. As part of the celebration, Glazer will also be participating on a disability awareness panel.
“Women’s eNews selected these 21 individuals and organizations for their unwavering and pioneering support for gender equality from the health, technology and business sectors to the voting booth,” says Lori Sokol, PhD., Executive Director and Editor-in-Chief.
Under her leadership as NOD President, Ms. Glazer has transformed NOD into the country’s premier resource and ambassador on disability inclusion with an employment-focused agenda. As a result, NOD partners with Corporate America to create new career opportunities for the sixty percent of Americans with disabilities, including our wounded veterans, that are not in the workforce. She continues to be an advocate and change leader for Americans with disabilities and all underrepresented groups, working diligently to foster greater opportunities to be part of our culture and community.
“I am truly honored to be recognized by Women’s eNews, especially in October as its National Disability Employment Awareness Month.” said NOD President Carol Glazer. “I am a firm believer in emphasizing what individuals with disabilities can do instead of what we can’t do, especially as it relates to employment. It is society’s obligation to make sure everyone can be an active and contributing participant in the world we live in.”
In addition to celebrating this year’s honorees, the Gala will include, for the first time in Women’s eNews’ 22-year history, a series of panel discussions addressing some of the most important issues impacting women and girls today including disability, health, business, diversity, leadership, and philanthropy.
