Today, November 17, Marc Schulman, President of The Eli’s Cheesecake Company, represented Eli’s Cheesecake on the “Doing It Right” Panel Discussion that was part of the 1st Annual Disability Inclusion Opportunity Summit held at Blue Cross Blue Shield. Part of the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, this was a way to encourage best practices by business and institutions in their workforce. It was a pleasure to talk about Eli’s People and our partners at the Anixter Center, Sunshine Center, Vaughn High School, New Horizons Center and the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences.

El Valor is a community organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities succeed. Eleni is the daughter of Georgia Giannakopoulos, a long time Eli’s Decorator and Trainer, and it is great to see Eleni’s success and service to the community.
