Development of a New Jersey Business Leadership Network

In 2006, the Heldrich Center worked with the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce and the State of New Jersey to establish a Business Leadership Network in New Jersey. A Business Leadership Network is a business-led and business-driven organization that assists employers with recruitment and retention of people with disabilities. In September 2006, the Heldrich Center organized a core group of interested employers to establish a permanent Business Leadership Network within the state. The Henry H. Kessler Foundation subsequently awarded grant funding to the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce to staff and operate the Business Leadership Network in 2007 and beyond. Funded by the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Disability Services.
