Springboard Consulting, LLC is pleased to welcome you to the Third Annual Disability Matters Asia-Pacific Conference & Awards. This most important corporate event will host a welcome reception and a full-day of content, plus the highly celebrated awards ceremony.

As in prior years, our conference will feature outstanding content as delivered by leading disability experts from corporations, academia, non-governmental organizations and governments from across the Asia-Pacific Region.  There will be amazing, inspirational stories as shared by our keynote presenters. A highlight of every year’s event is the sharing of our honorees award-winning practices related to the successful mainstreaming of people who either have a disability or have a child or other dependent with special needs in the workforce, workplace and marketplace.

As in prior years, honoree categories include:

Workforce –  This award is in consideration of a company’s programs/initiatives that touch on recruiting, training, reasonable accommodations and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Workplace –  This award is in consideration of a company’s programs/initiatives that touch on Disability Employee Resource Groups, Mentor Programs, Etiquette & Awareness Initiatives, the delivery/dissemination of educational Information and resources and company-wide celebratory events.

Marketplace –  This award is in consideration of a company’s programs/initiatives that focus on the marketing of products and/or services (mainstream and targeted) to the disability community.

Please join us and our Host Sponsor,  Krunthai-AXA Life Insurance Co., Ltd. as we Celebrate, Educate, Inspire and Network.

We look forward to your participation in the 2015 Disability Matters Asia-Pacific Conference & Awards and are confident it will help you see that disability-focused initiatives — whether in the workplace, workforce, or marketplace — are not just a strategic advantage, but a business imperative.
