Join us January 23-24, 2024 and engage with a national network of professionals with disabilities working in industry and public service


What is it?

The Disability Leadership Summit is designed to support established and emerging leaders with disabilities in corporate and public service organizations through collaborative and innovative dialogue on such topics as Employee Resource Groups (ERG) / Business Resource Groups (BRG), mentoring, leadership pathways and creating inclusive environments.

We anticipate 100 people from across the country to participate in this exciting online conference, to take place over two half-days in January 2024. Each day will begin with an inspiring keynote, followed by interactive breakouts to share knowledge and perspectives and to forge connections among participants.

Who is it for?

Leaders and emerging leaders with disabilities, along with their employers and allies.  

Please note:  to preserve the purpose and goal of the Summit, 50% of attendees must identify as people with disabilities

  • Grow your professional network; connect with a dynamic, underrepresented market of professional leaders during and beyond the Summit
  • Learn fresh ideas and best practices for embedding and enhancing inclusion practices in your organization

Our Goals

  • Enable participants to build meaningful and authentic connections that continue beyond the scope of the event

  • Lay the foundation for a signature annual event attracting marquee sponsors and keynotes and becomes a “must attend” in the field.
