Thank you to Lee Pang Chun, VP of Marketing and Communications- UIC Net Impact, for contributing this post.
Earlier this month, UIC Net Impact invited Mike Baskin, the President of Inclusion Solutions and Patrick Hughes, the CEO and Founder of Inclusion Solutions, to come to the UIC campus for a company profile of Inclusion Solutions. We were so glad to have them join us to welcome back our members from spring break!
Inclusion Solutions expects to become the nation’s foremost access provider by working with people with disabilities, the business community, and government to find practical products and services that help ensure inclusion.
Patrick shared his story about considering helping those with disabilities after he met a disabled friend as a teenager. His sincerity and passion came out in the discussion. Patrick and Mike are working for a vision to produce common-sense solutions that balance a respect for the dignity of the consumers with the financial concerns of a business focused on matters of inclusion. They hope to change the perception of people with disabilities and promote inclusion at all levels. We could see they truly love what they are doing and making a difference in the world.
The company profile for Inclusion Solutions was quite successful and Net Impact members learned much from Mike Baskin and Patrick Hughes. We would also like to thank Mary Clark, UIC Liautaud Assistant Dean, for recommending Mike and Patrick to share their experiences with us! In addition, thank you to everyone who attended this event!
