We invite you to attend the 2nd Annual Corporate Partner Summit. This event brings together corporate leaders that are focused on creating diverse and inclusive work cultures all over the United States. Sessions include a review of best practices in D&I initiatives, “What’s Next” in the inclusive culture, review of the business benefits to hiring individuals with disabilities and the ROI to your business, and much more.
- Who: This summit targets business leaders from all over the country looking to create and expand a diverse and inclusive workplace.
- What: Share, network and hear firsthand from experts, current national corporate partners, and Best Buddies participants about diversity and inclusion initiatives and the many business benefits to hiring individuals with disabilities.
- Why: Nearly 75% of high-performing organizations say that inclusion improves productivity, but only one-third of such organizations report inclusion initiatives that were highly effective.
