Columbus, OH, September 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- On Friday, September 28th, over 50 organizations, including Michigan-based Big Tent Jobs, LLC, are hosting the second National Forum on Disability Issues (NFDI). Big Tent Jobs is a leading recruiting firm in the United States offering career opportunities for top technical professionals, including those with hidden and visible disabilities. To Big Tent Jobs, this forum is an important event which can highlight the untapped talent in this community.
"We are delighted to sponsor the NFDI event," says Adam Kaplan, Founder and CEO of Big Tent Jobs, LLC. "People with disabilities have many of the same needs as the general population, including access to good job opportunities. Through events like NFDI and our work at Big Tent Jobs, we look forward to an increased participation rate of people with disabilities in the U.S. Workforce."
During the presidential election of 2008, a large group of organizations dedicated to the concerns of the aging and disabled joined together to sponsor the first NFDI in which the presidential candidates could address and discuss these points of interest, such as employment, health care, and long-term services. Both the Obama and McCain campaigns participated in the forum.
The NFDI is a non-partisan, collaborative effort and the only national event to focus specifically on disability issues. Peter Berns, CEO of The Arc, a national community-based organization serving the disabled and their families, opines that "the disability community is counting on the presidential candidates to speak up for disability issues and make their voices heard on the nation’s only platform dedicated to this topic."
The organizers of the 2012 NFDI have invited the presidential candidates, as well as the Ohio senatorial candidates to participate in this year's discussions, which will be moderated by Frank Sesno, former CNN White House correspondent, anchor and Washington bureau chief.
