Policy Panel on the Purchasing Power of People with Disabilities

People with disabilities have nearly half a trillion dollars in disposable income—the after-tax dollars for basic necessities such as housing, food, and clothing. In the marketplace, people with disabilities—as well as their families, friends, and advocates—wield considerable spending power.

On April 22, 2021, the Institute for Educational Leadership, AIR, and a panel of regional and global business leaders met for a discussion about the benefits to the business community in serving customers with disabilities. The panelists discussed business strategies for inclusion of people with disabilities and their families, from design to marketing to hiring.



This webinar is brought to you by the American Institutes for Research, in partnership with the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL).
