1 in 4 people has a disability. People with disabilities 2x more likely to be unemployed, 2x more likely to be underemployed, and 2x more likely to live in poverty than their nondisabled peers.
Starkloff Disability Institute is working to change that.
Our programs to help disabled people thrive by acting on both sides of the problem:
Empowering Candidates: Our candidate programs empower people with disabilities to take control of their careers and succeed in competitive professions. Through a range of programs targeting youth, college students, and adults, Starkloff teaches people with disabilities to step into their power as disabled professionals and equips them with the tools to thrive in the workplace.
Improving Systems: Through corporate partnerships, community outreach, conferences, media, and more, Starkloff dispels myths and helps companies implement inclusive hiring and customer service practices. We use many approaches to teach people how common disability is, that it isn’t something to fear or be uncomfortable with, and how they can be more welcoming.
