  • Inspiring keynotes who are themselves disabled leaders in their organizations
  • Practical suggestions for developing your direction as a leader
  • Interactive discussions on such topics as Employee Resource Groups (ERG)/Business Resource Groups (BRG),leadership pathways, and creating inclusive work environments
  • Networking with other emerging and established leaders with disabilities, along with allies in senior corporate and public service roles
