The Forum on Workplace Inclusion Honors USBLN with 2018 Diversity Awards

Logo for The Forum on Workplace Inclusion. In 2008, The Forum on Workplace Inclusion created an awards program to recognize individuals or organizations dedicated to raising awareness of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Since then, The Forum hosts an annual celebration in honor of those that impact change and demonstrate sustained support for advancing equality in the workplace. This year, The Forum on Workplace Inclusion is recognizing Disability:IN as a recipient of the 2018 Winds of Change Award.

“This award places us among a group of dedicated and distinguished workplace equality advocates. We’re immensely proud to be chosen to receive the 2018 Winds of Change Award,” said Jill Houghton, USBLN’s Executive Director.

Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients! The Diversity Awards will be presented at The Forum on Workplace Inclusion Annual Conference. Celebrating its 30th year, it is the nation’s leading forum for advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The awards ceremony will take place on April 11th, in Minneapolis. More information about the Diversity Awards and the conference can be found on their website.
