Why I wrote the book...

After years of working with business owners and public sector employees I have repeatedly heard people mention how it would be useful for them to have access to information on what is happening in business inclusion across the country in one place. I wanted to find a way to share as much information as I could to: (1) help public sector employees learn from others doing the work and (2) to help business owners in navigating certification and business inclusion contracting programs across the country.
