Other Groups Affiliated with Disability:IN:
DEI Advisory Committee:
The DEI Advisory Committee is a diverse group of business leaders, policy experts, and disability advocates, who have been elected to share their knowledge, expertise, and vision to enhance disability inclusion policies and practices in the workplace. This is a small, closed committee and is currently invite-only.
National Certification Committee (NCC):
The NCC is an essential working group responsible for the critical evaluation of certification applications and documentation received from disability suppliers (DOBEs) as well as recertification requests while upholding world class certification standards. This committee is not included in the standard committee list as the commitment involved is a bit more than others. Committee members meet virtually once per month for approximately two hours. Outside of meetings, members also review assigned certification applications and supporting documents using an online system, which takes approximately two additional hours monthly. Experience in legal, tax, finance and/or accounting is helpful but not required. Members are required to sign an NDA. Please reach out to [email protected] with questions or interest!
Neurodiversity @ Work Employer Roundtable:
The Neurodiversity @ Work Employer Roundtable is a collection of innovative leaders who spearhead autism-focused hiring initiatives. As a collection of cross industry employers, we lead field-specific recruitment efforts. The results have been significant for our culture development and for people with autism. This group is facilitated by Microsoft and requires having a neurodiversity hiring program already in place for at least a year.
The NextGen Council is a group of NextGen Alumni who help to inform, educate, advise and assist Disability:IN, its corporate partners, and Affiliates on the ways in which to effectively engage college students and youth with disabilities. This council is not open to Disabliity:IN partner companies.
