Disability:IN Chicagoland concludes its second annual virtual Disability Inclusion Opportunity Summit on Tuesday, October 26th from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm Central, with an online discussion on the importance of ensuring that products and services are inclusive and accessible. The U.S. Office of Disability Employment Policy categorizes people with disabilities as the third largest U.S. market segment, after Hispanics and African Americans, with a discretionary income of $21 billion. In fact, according to recent data, companies that scored highly on the Disability Equality Index (DEI), Disability:IN’s corporate benchmarking tool, have above average financial performance with 28% higher revenue and double the net income. Not surprisingly, successful businesses around the globe are more intentionally including people with disabilities as a target market as they conceive, develop, and distribute their products and services. Register now to participate in a conversation on Advancing Disability Inclusion Across the Marketplace where professionals from Chicagoland companies who are building inclusive products and services share details about what they’ve learned and observed along the way, including best practices and success stories. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this important conversation!
