Getting to know Nielsen’s ADEPT


October 19 is Disability Mentoring Day. To celebrate the efforts of Nielsen’s Abled and Disabled Employees Partnering Together (ADEPT) employee resource group, Andrew Mccaskill, SVP of Global Communications & Multicultural Marketing, talked with John Burbank, President of Strategic Initiatives and ADEPT Executive Sponsor, and Sneha Dontula, Manager of Client Solutions and ADEPT Northeast co-lead, about what ADEPT does and why it’s important to Nielsen.

John and Sneha spoke about the unique challenges faced by associates with disabilities as well as those associates who are caregivers for individuals with disabilities. These challenges are not always widely known, so ADEPT works to create awareness for these challenges in order to foster a more inclusive workplace, where all associates are empowered to succeed.
