The Business Leadership Council is committed to being a strong partner of ADA 25 Chicago and future initiatives that support the mission of the ADA. As the convener of Chicago's preeminent African American business leaders, the Business Leadership Council will further enhance disability awareness among its membership and within the African-American business community in Chicago. Efforts will be organized to utilize the media outlets represented in the group to raise awareness about how disabilities affect the African American community. The Business Leadership Council will increase focus on access to employment, education and training opportunities that we hope will to have a lasting impact.
