A presentation by Randy Lewis, pioneer of the disability hiring movement

In celebration of Autism Awareness Month, the Geisinger-Bucknell Autism & Developmental Medicine Center welcomes Randy Lewis, pioneer of the disability hiring movement. Lewis is the author of "No Greatness Without Goodness," the powerful story of a corporate executive who, after watching the world through the eyes of his own child with autism, realized that we all have a greater responsibility to make the world a better place for everyone, including those with disabilities.

Before retiring from Walgreens in 2013 as Senior Vice President, Mr. Lewis led its logistics division for 16 years as the chain grew from 1,500 to 8,000 stores. Believing that people with disabilities could do more, Mr. Lewis established a disability employment model in the distribution centers that resulted in 10% of its workforce consisting of people with disabilities. This initiative is now being rolled out in Walgreens stores across America and is changing the lives of thousands.
