Washington, D.C., USA – National Disability Institute (NDI) is thrilled to announce the much-anticipated Disability Owned Convening, scheduled for October 31, November 1, and November 2, 2023. This free, virtual, and dynamic event promises to be a game-changer for entrepreneurs and small business owners with disabilities, as well as entrepreneurial ecosystem partners. Everyone with an interest in diversity, equity, and inclusion can register and be part of this inclusive and informative gathering.
People with disabilities are two times more likely to be self-employed than those living without disabilities. This event is fully committed to promoting disability inclusion, diversity of resources, and accessibility. Attendees can expect to gain valuable insights, resources, and networking opportunities that can significantly impact their businesses.
According to Tom Foley, NDI Executive Director, “For a growing number of working-age adults with disabilities, the establishment of small businesses has become a viable path to participate in our country’s economic growth and improve their own economic stability and security. NDI is proud to offer tools and resources that match the talents, ambition, and potential of small business owners with disabilities.”
What sets this event apart is its unwavering focus on disability inclusion and the diversity of presenters from various backgrounds, including small business owners with disabilities. The event is fully accessible, ensuring that all participants can engage, regardless of their abilities.
“We are glad to help National Disability Institute with our virtual platform to organize a fully accessible event for people with disabilities and redefine their commitment to inclusion,” said Muhammad Younas, vFairs CEO.
