About BCDI

Diversity & Inclusion in the workforce is a necessary component of business viability and growth in today’s world.  As Florida faces worker shortfalls and mass retirements, it is becoming even more critical that organizations access and integrate non-traditional talent pools into their workforce-especially Persons with Unique Abilities.
