2019 NextGen Leaders

Three years ago we were just an observer at the Annual Conference. Now, we actively participate so we can learn how to shape all facets of our business. We had intention and authentic motivation to serve people with disabilities, but we weren’t sure how to advance. This has been a terrific continuous learning process.

Rodney Martin
Chairman & CEO
Voya Financial

Disability:IN not only helps advance your efforts, but also helps you get there a lot faster. For us, now we’re able to focus on our metrics. How many disabilityowned businesses are in our supply chain? What should the target be? How can we scale? We can operate with intentionality and always ask what’s next.

Regina Heyward
Senior Vice President and
Head of Supplier Diversity
Wells Fargo

The Disability:IN conference completely changed my life and gave me further perspective on how organizations are striving to become more inclusive. I’m now fielding multiple job offers! I’m eternally grateful for the conference for shaping me into the person I am today and for empowering me to form connections that I know will last for a lifetime.
