About Us

DDAN DISH Disability Advocates Network Employee Resource Group Color Logo

Our Mission

The DISH Disability Advocates Network helps to encourage an atmosphere of understanding, respect and support for employees who personally live with illness, pain or disability, or who are caregivers themselves. In addition, we aim to positively impact employee families, our customers, our company, and our communities.

Your Advocacy Starts Here!

Are you a Dish employee with a passion for helping others? Have you wanted to share your ideas of how to make the world a better place? Have you ever needed a helping hand or been the first to extend one yourself? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider joining us as a member, a volunteer, a leader; a part of the DISH Disability Advocates Network.
