Workforce Equity

Message from the National Disability Institute:

Accessing capital can be essential for business growth, yet many founders with disabilities report experiencing significant barriers. Join our five-part webinar series to hear from community development financial institutions (CDFI) who have found ways to increase inclusion and from disability-owned businesses on how they obtained the capital they needed.

Who should attend:

  • Entrepreneurs with disabilities looking for information on accessing capital and how CDFI lending differs from that of traditional banks;
  • CDFIs with a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion who wish to ensure they are meeting the needs of business owners with disabilities; and
  • Entrepreneurial and other support organizations looking for information to assist their customers to access capital and other financial health supports.

Register for the Introduction to CDFI’s session on February 28, 2023, from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EST.

Register for sessions 2–5, scheduled every other Tuesday from March 7, 2023, through April 18, 2023, from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EST. Each session will include CDFI and the experiences of business owners with disabilities.

ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided during the session. If you have any accessibility requests or questions, please email Alexis Jones. For more information, visit NDI’s website.
