Business Advisory Council

The Business Advisory Council (BAC) members share one of Arc Broward’s strategic goals of generating employment outcomes for people with disabilities and other employment barriers. BAC members are ambassadors of Arc Broward at networking events and help to raise community awareness around disability employment. 

Efforts include information exchange, sharing success stories, advocacy, community education and referrals. The BAC works collaboratively with Arc Works on employment placements by assisting to build an employer network, customize jobs and foster careers for program participants.

Members assist the Arc Broward staff by sharing business needs of local employers and mutually address business needs of employers with the employment needs of job seekers in Arc Broward’s talent pool. Council members will join forces to embrace, promote and pursue access to and inclusion of people with disabilities and other life challenges in the workforce
