Tuesday, October 19, 2:30 - 4:00 pm ET
Register for the virtual event.

Individuals with disabilities experience many barriers to employment that lead to a higher unemployment rate when compared to non-disabled individuals. Yet research shows that when American businesses hire and support workers with disabilities these businesses see improved performance and productivity—28% higher revenue and 30% higher profit margins than peer businesses that do not. 

ACL launched the Inclusive Talent Pipeline for American Businesses challenge competition to help businesses identify ways to help expand their recruiting and retention programs to better include workers with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

Join ACL during National Disability Employment Awareness Month for the final live event of the competition as the finalists present their workforce pipeline projects that will enable businesses to benefit from the talents of a wider, more-diverse workforce and ensure more Americans with disabilities can advance and compete in the future economy. 

This free event will include live captioning and ASL interpretation. Please let us know by Thursday, October 14 if you require any additional accommodations to fully participate in the event. 

Please direct any questions to Dana Fink or call 202-795-7604.
