The GBDN is a network of multinational enterprises, employers' organizations, business networks and disabled persons' organizations who share the conviction that people with disabilities have talents and skills that can enhance virtually any business. The ILO believes ‘Disability Inclusion makes good business sense’.
The USCIB advances the global interests of American business both at home and abroad. It addresses a broad range of policy issues with the objective of promoting an open system of world trade, finance and investment in which business can flourish and contribute to economic growth, human welfare and protection of the environment.
