Regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation, everyone at some point in his or her lifetime can be affected directly or indirectly by a disability.
With this in mind, BDI advances efforts by businesses and communities to work toward inclusiveness. In addition to providing several resources, BDI hosts disability awareness presentations to better educate the public.
