As part of a 3-year pilot project in Hernando, Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties, The Diversity Initiative’s Business Center for Diversity & Inclusion (BCDI) was established to help achieve the Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation’s (VR) goal of becoming a top resource to the business community.
Funded by the Florida Department of Education Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Business Center intends to partner with and offer employers access to no-fee training presentations, consultations and referrals to better promote, prepare, and support their interest in, or commitment to, becoming more inclusive in their hiring practices. Data collected from this project is intended to secure valuable feedback from employers that will assist in improving employment rates for Persons with Unique Abilities.
