There are many ways in which businesses and people with disabilities can support each other in New Jersey through the work
of the NJBLN. Find out how you can get involved by clicking here.
The NJBLN established and supports the ongoing efforts of a national job board dedicated to closing the gap between employers searching for qualified workers and candidates with disabilities seeking employment. Post jobs or resumes, and sign up for the site's quarterly newsletter.
In partnership with the USBLN, the NJBLN is supporting people with disabilities who own a business, helping them acquire the Disability-Owned Business Enterprise Certification through the Disability Supplier Diversity Program (DSDP). This credential offers potential contracting opportunities with major corporations and government agencies.
People with disabilities, their families, service providers, and supporters control $200 billion of disposable income, and they can use that latent power in a consumer activism effort that patronizes businesses that have earned the right to display the Disabilities At Work logo. Check out Disabilities At Work Radio, too.
The Campaign for Disability Employment is a collaborative effort
to help promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities by encouraging employers and others to recognize the value and talent they bring to the workplace.
