Greater Cincinnati will soon leverage its position as a national model to further disability inclusion in small and large business. It starts with providing more resources to recruit and retain disabled workers, according to business leaders.

In August, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber will hold several events on increasing employment for people with disabilities, in hopes of growing a labor force that is desperate for new workers.

The meetings are part of an initiative announced in April, when the Chamber was selected by the Department of Labor to implement a national pilot program on disability inclusion.
