Employee Affinity Groups (EAGs) have made advances in their organizations. These groups advocate across many different identities and interests as diversity and inclusion stand out as a necessary part in making the workplace better for everyone. In recent years Disability/Ability groups have started to pop up in many corporate and collegial organizations. The goal of these groups is often, but not limited, to:
-Educate nondisabled employees about disability issues including etiquette and basic questions
Reflect the experiences of Disabled employees and family members of Disabled individuals
-Introduce and facilitate Disability centered recruitment, mentoring and retainment of employees

After Nina's presentation, I kept receiving outstanding reviews about how much they loved Nina, would love to see her again…”
