The Disability Matters Award
Springboard Consulting annually honors exemplary organizational initiatives with the Disability Matters Award for the successful promotion, outreach, recruitment, employment, engagement and retention of candidates and employees with disabilities and for the successful promotion, outreach, engagement and retention of consumers with disabilities and those who have children and other dependents with special needs. These award winning initiatives are publicly celebrated at the Disability Matters Awards Ceremony.
Disability Matters Award winners share their best practice initiatives and learnings along the way, throughout the Disability Matters Conference. Their presentations, along with those of our keynote speakers and other professionals, serve as practical tools with scalable solutions that others can utilize within their own organizations.
Springboard is honored to be associated with organizations whose innovative and pioneering initiatives have proven so powerful in changing their organizations perspective about people with disabilities and their families both as employees and as consumers and realizing that doing so is not just a strategic advantage, it’s a business imperative. We look forward to a long future of progress and success, and we encourage you to consider your own organization’s efforts for building a better workforce, workplace and marketplace for people with disabilities and their families.
