Making a positive impact on workplace inclusion.
On our mission to improve disability employment on Long Island and beyond, we’re grateful to have some global influence in our corner. S&P Global influence, that is. We honored S&P Global’s commitment to workplace diversity and inclusion at our annual Golf Outing fundraiser in September for good reason: S&P Global is a multinational company with world-class corporate citizenship standards.
S&P Global keeps the dialogue on disability going through EASE (Enable, Achieve, Succeed, Empower), one of nine employee resource groups set on attracting diverse talent and supporting professionals with different abilities internally and externally. Internally, the group implements appropriate skill-building workshops and hosts guest speakers relevant to its employees with disabilities, as well as family members and caretakers touched by disability at home.
Externally, it works beside Viscardi’s vocational training and employment placement services programs, conducting mock interviews, reviewing resumes, and equipping job seekers with vital career-ready skills. The company also participates in Emerging Leaders (EL) — a now year-round program of the National Business & Disability Council (NBDC) at The Viscardi Center that places high-achieving college students with disabilities into competitive internships in his or her chosen field.
S&P Global isn’t stopping there. This spring, the company is sponsoring our Career Fair for People with Disabilities, which connects qualified job candidates with disabilities — including veterans — to over forty Long Island companies of various sizes and industries.
