The US Business Leadership Network® (USBLN®)
The US Business Leadership Network® (USBLN®) is the national disability organization that serves as the collective voice of over 60 Business Leadership Network affiliates across North America, representing over 5,000 employers. The USBLN® helps build workplaces, marketplaces, and supply chains where people with disabilities are respected for their talents, while supporting the development and expansion of its BLN affiliates. The USBLN® recognizes and supports best practices in the employment and advancement of people with disabilities; the preparedness for work of youth and students with disabilities; marketing to consumers with disabilities; and contracting with vendors with disabilities through the development and certification of disability-owned businesses.
The USBLN® website contains information designed specifically for business, including the recently released "Leading Practices on Disability Inclusion" (pdf) , which was cosponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This booklet highlights successful corporate strategies used by businesses of all sizes to create a more inclusive workplace, marketplace and supply chain.
The Utah Chapter of the USBLN® is called UBET – Utah Business Employer Team. UBET is housed in the local Chambers of Commerce and can also be contacted at the Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities at (801) 887-9392.
