The National Business & Disability Council (NBDC) at The Viscardi Center is a comprehensive resource for businesses. With so much potential on the horizon for people with disabilities, NBDC isn’t taking a back seat but rather repositioning itself as a leader for Fortune 1000 companies and other public/private organizations seeking to improve workplace diversity, disability marketing and accessible information & communication technology.
Beginning January 2014, through NBDC’s new tiered-model, NBDC offers its corporate partners research, consultations, workshops and trainings, publications and benchmarking strategies on how to create, implement, grow and measure first-rate disability programs.
Please reference our NBDC 2016 Corporate Partnership Prospectus to learn more about the many resources, services and tools offered to our corporate partners. It highlights some of our new initiatives, including our Daily Disability News Report e‐zine, Industry Roundtables, Marketing Anthropology Project (MAP) and Business Summits. These initiatives build on our proven programs, including our Job Posting Service and Emerging Leaders Summer Internship Program for College & Graduate Students with Disabilities.

Some of our key programs include:
- Emerging Leaders Internship Program for College Students with Disabilities: The Emerging Leaders program, funded by the UPS Foundation and coordinated by NBDC, focuses on matching college students with disabilities with member companies for a summer internship program that could potentially lead to full-time employment. From a business perspective, it is a way for companies to bring new talent to their workforce since these students come from well-recognized colleges and universities across the country and represent a bright, diverse, and growing future talent pool.
- Job Postings: The Job Posting Service is a signature service that allows members to post jobs on our website and directly reach out to qualified candidates with disabilities about potential job opportunities. It provides an opportunity for member companies to diversify and expand its reach to a vast, qualified labor market. Please download our one-page flyer.
