Connecticut Business Leadership Network


“The Connecticut Business Leadership Network is a coalition of over 250 members/businesses who strive to maximize employment opportunities for people with disabilities by working with other businesses, governmental organizations and community service agencies.”
“Our mission is to improve recruitment and retention of qualified persons with disabilities, establish an inclusive work culture and promote the adoption of best practices initiatives.
“We change attitudes, we improve workplaces and we change lives by bringing diversity full circle to include people with disabilities. We combine our professionalism with our passion to fulfill the dream that disability will no longer be a barrier to employment and we are willing to do whatever it takes to make that dream a reality.
“CTBLN works to achieve these goals by disseminating best practices for the hiring of people with disabilities and reaching out to the disability community to find qualified candidates who will help us reach our goal of bringing diversity full circle to include people with disabilities.”
