Engaging in a committee is one way to get more involved with Disability:IN. Committees provide leadership and professional development opportunities as well as best practice sharing.

  • Accessibility Leadership Committee: A diverse group of business leaders who have come together to share their knowledge, strategies and best practices to help organizations enhance and maintain accessibility policies and practices in the workplace.  While the committee’s current focus is on digital accessibility the Committee recognizes that a corporate commitment to accessibility goes “beyond digital” to include all aspects of the built, operational, communication, program and other environments that our applicants and employees experience.
