Mission

We work to counter attitudes and myths about people with disabilities—as well as demonstrate to businesses how to "think beyond the label" when it comes to hiring this group. Our message is simple: labels get in the way, disabilities rarely do.

Program Description

We provide businesses with up-to-date information, tools and the state and local resources they need to hire people with disabilities and integrate them into their workforce. Whether through outreach to our state employment partners, engagement with job seekers who register on our site, or advocacy with policymakers, we are always working to help businesses further their hiring needs.

We offer job seekers a network and digital hub that provides information, tools and resources to aid in their job search so they can find meaningful employment in their chosen field. Our jobs feed allows users to search and apply for jobs with companies that are actively seeking to hire them. We also have a widely read blog and e-newsletter and proactively communicate with job seekers through our social media channels.
