Different Perspectives, Better Solutions

Odds are high that everyone reading today’s blog knows October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s been a cause worthy of attention since its inception in 1985.

Supporting Autism Research through Els for Autism

The ADA: A Silver Anniversary We Should All Celebrate

July 26 marks the silver anniversary of the ADA, designed to ensure equal access, accommodation, and opportunities for individuals with disabilities. While we’re not a huge fan of regulation, as it often leads to over-regulation, we do believe it is a moral imperative to remove physical or other barriers to those with disabilities, in work and in life.

October - A Month for Special Causes

now, most of us know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. With a quarter of a million new cases diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone, it is likely we are all touched in one way or another by this terrible disease.
