Ohio recently became an affiliate of the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN). The USBLN is a national disability organization that serves as the collective voice of over 60 business leadership network affiliates across North America, representing over 5,000 employers. The Ohio BLN is an employer-to-employer educational organization. Members engage in networking discussions to increase their knowledge of community outreach, recruiting and interviewing, the accommodation process and barriers to employment. By participating, employers learn how to leverage their organizations for success. Membership is free and open to all employers.
