Rebranded from the U.S. Business Leadership Network to Disability:IN in 2019, the organization has teamed with more than 260 corporations to achieve more disability inclusion across their enterprises and in the broader corporate mainstream. In 2020, timed with the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Disability:IN launched the #AreYouIN campaign, asking the country’s CEOs to join “in” publicly and sign its CEO Letter on Disability Inclusion. CEOs from Accenture, Intel, Microsoft, Walmart, Starbucks, and more than 50 others put their names on the letter. Also in 2020, more than 52,000 people with disabilities were hired in corporations through Inclusion Works, Disability:IN’s consulting and recruiting arm. Inclusion Works grew from 45 to 63 companies in 2020, a 40% increase. It now has 70 companies in the program that provides unlimited, customized, virtual, and on-site consulting by a team of inclusion experts. It also helps companies recruit and hire people with disabilities, and has seen nearly 300x growth in new hires since 2014.
