We are also, for the first time in the MBA space, holding an Ability Hiring Event. The goal of this event is to build an inclusive hiring approach that recognizes and embraces the strengths of candidates with all disabilities. The World Health Organization defines disability to arise from the interaction between a person’s health condition or impairment and the multitude of influencing factors in their environment. Health conditions associated with disability can be but are not limited to: those that are visible or invisible; temporary or long term; static, episodic, or degenerating; painful or inconsequential.

Students who identify as a person with a disability are encouraged to apply for this program.  ACTION: I was hoping I could ask you to share this opportunity with your University’s Disability Resource Center so that they are able to make sure students are aware.
