Disability Employment Summit
Disability Inclusion in a Global Workforce
“The unemployment rate among adult Americans with disabilities who want to work and can work is over 60%! That is a blot on our national character.”
Sen. Harkin’s farewell speech to the Senate
A Note from Senator Harkin
Thank you for your interest in the Harkin International Disability Employment Summit. In its inaugural year, the Harkin Summit begins a tradition of bringing together change agents to develop strategies for increasing disability employment around the world.
The 2016 Summit is possible thanks in large part to a visionary, leadership gift from the Ruderman Family Foundation, which believes that inclusion and understanding of all people is essential to a fair and flourishing community.
