"In my capacity as Chief Diversity Officer at Cisco, I hired Springboard to help us launch an ERG in support of people with disabilities.  Nadine Vogel was referred to me as the expert in all areas of support for PWD and I was even more impressed after working with her.  She is one of those rare individuals who is completely committed to achieving results and supporting those with disabilities as well as those whose family members have disabilities -- and that comes through in all that she does and the fabulous support my team and I got from Springboard.  Within 18-months we at Cisco had a solid global disability network creating and implementing best practices.  This would not have been possible or would have been a long multi-year journey if we had not worked with Springboard.  While I'm no longer at Cisco, I know the legacy and foundation Nadine and Springboard built for the disability community there has continued to grow and Cisco has become a global leader in this area because of their ongoing support."  December 27, 2012

What People Are Saying About Nadine’s Book, DIVE IN

“Education and technology are the two great equalizers in life, leveling the playing field for everyone, especially the disabled. DIVE IN provides the information and tools to better understand how to remove the barriers to employing this large, loyal segment of the population and in doing so, improve productivity and profitability."

John Chambers, Chairman and CEO, Cisco

“It is important that all stakeholders, from educators to government officials to private sector employers focus on making the recruitment, hiring and retention of people with disabilities a priority and business objective. This is not simply because it’s the right or nice thing to do. Just as with other members of diverse work forces, people with disabilities bring new approaches to innovation and productivity that drive real business improvement. It is also important to consider the benefits to an organization’s corporate social responsibility efforts that engaging this important segment of the workforce will provide. This is why DIVE IN is such an important book for anyone in business.”

Tig Gilliam, CEO Adecco Group North America

“At KPMG, we are committed to an inclusive culture that supports diversity and values the perspectives and experiences of all our people, including, as Dive In points out, people with disabilities. Highly skilled, fully engaged, diverse global talent enrich our organization and are critical to the success of our firm.”

John B. Veihmeyer, CEO, KPMG LLP

"I’m a grandmother who has twin grandsons with Autism. Buying developmentally appropriate toys for them is always a challenge. A friend of mine recently introduced me to the Differently Abled Guide put out by Toys R Us. This has helped me tremendously. I now share this with others who have similar family situations.” B.A. in Los Angeles, CA.
