The Able Trust is excited to announce the launch of the ABLE Network (A Business Leadership Exchange). The ABLE Network is created to support Florida businesses as they strive for a disability inclusive workforce. It is made up business leaders who have a desire to share their diversity & inclusion experiences and to learn from other colleagues. The ABLE Network is a B2B/peer-to-peer network, and operates primarily through local leadership groups. The network also engages with the Able Trust’s statewide workforce inclusion initiatives.

ABLE Network members have the opportunity to:

  • Learn proven strategies to advance disability inclusion in the work- and marketplace;

  • Cultivate relationships between business, community, and academic partners; and

  • Become thought leaders for disability workforce and marketplace inclusion.

We are currently recruiting business leaders who want to be a part of growing the ABLE Network in their local area, and we know that listening is the first step. This fall we are holding a series of virtual “Listening Sessions” to solicit input on how an ABLE Network could meet your specific diversity and inclusion needs. Register today, as spots are limited.

If your local area is not in our first series, we promise to make it there soon! In the meantime, let us know of your interest in the ABLE Network by emailing Business@AbleTrust.org
