SourceAmerica and the National Council of SourceAmerica Employers (NCSE) launch the Social Enterprises of the Future initiative, to address barriers to employment, impact meaningful change, and expand work opportunities for people with disabilities.
Americans with disabilities—our largest and most diverse minority group—are invaluable assets to the US economy,” says Steve Soroka, SourceAmerica president and CEO, in a media release. “Through this initiative, we hope to create a national coalition in support of an Inclusion Economy, which delivers greater opportunity and choice to all people with disabilities in tomorrow’s workplace.”
As part of this initiative, SourceAmerica and NCSE joined forces to release the first two reports in a comprehensive five-part series designed to shape the future of work, according to the release.
The first report, “The Future of Work and the Disability Community,” which was developed independently by SourceAmerica, focuses on trends affecting workplace inclusion of people with disabilities and the impact of technology on the changing nature of work.
The second report, “Social Enterprises of the Future: A Collective Response,” represents a year-long engagement with the disability community. This report offers new innovative employment models to adapt to today’s rapidly changing workplace landscape.
The next study in the series, “Practices for Sustained Social Impact, Market Perspectives and Policy Perspectives,” will be published later this summer, the release continues.
