Chicago Business Leaders Learn the Benefits and Rewards of Hiring People With Disabilities

October 14, 2015

David Rapoport was pleased to attend the morning program presentation by ADA25 Chicago hosted by the Economic Club of Chicago. The topic — what businesses can do for people with disabilities and why they should do it — was both informative and inspiring. The three-member presentation panel included Kareem Dale, Director and Senior Counsel, Discover Financial Services; Karen Tamley, Commissioner, Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities; and Steve Pemberton, Vice President of Diversity & Inclusion, Walgreens Booth Alliance. The excellent presentation and follow-up discussion helped Chicago business leaders learn from the great examples provided by Discover and Walgreens. See: www.ada25chicago.org for further information.
