UCP: 2009 Life Without Limits Economic Forum & Celebration

  • Washington, D.C., USA
  • September 30, 2009
 
UCP (United Cerebral Palsy) and IPS (Integrated Process Solutions LLP) are co-chairing the 2009 Life Without Limits Economic Forum & Celebration that will begin to set a new standard in how businesses think about "disability" - both from an internally focused management perspective as well as from an externally focused marketing and innovation perspective.  

The forum will be held on the afternoon of September 30th and will cover the considerable market opportunity that a strategic approach to "disability" can present. The organizers's goal is to use this event to develop a coalition of best in class companies (AT&T, American Express, Google, IBM, PepsiCo, Target, Best Buy, etc.)  who have a vested interest in better understanding insights from this space and would continue to share best practices and learning to leverage their successes.

UCP is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities. UCP's Life Without Limits program encompasses disabilities from autism and other childhood disabilities through Alzheimer’s and other disabilities of the elderly; the organization serves thousands of people every day through a nationwide network of affiliate organizations. UCP is in the process of developing a truly breakthrough online community that companies will be able to tap into for everything from consolidated information about benefits for people with disabilities on a state by state basis to the explosion of open source new product development that is currently being designed by people with disabilities to improve usability of products and work productivity for everyone.
