The Coalition for Workforce Diversity has placed over 450 workers in great positions in the last four years alone. The Coalition places each unique person where they will prosper most; taking into consideration the scope and limitations of their disability. The Coalition provides ongoing support to individuals with disabilities that goes beyond most available programs.
The Coalition for Workforce Diversity forms trusted partnerships with employers who celebrate diversity in the workplace and are looking to provide work opportunities to people with disabilities. The Coalition represents potential workers with a broad spectrum of physical and mental disabilities; each with unique skills and personality that contribute to a truly great workplace.
Service provider partners involved with The Coalition for Workforce Diversity are an integral part of our ongoing success. Our service partners act as job coaches, as a communication point between the employer, the individual with disabilities and even between the worker and employees. Our service providers possess a wide range of specializations and contribute in a number of different ways. Without our service partners, we would not be successful in finding meaningful employment for individuals with disabilities.
HOW IT WORKS
Through the collaborative efforts of the Coalition, individuals with disabilities are referred to potential employers who value diversity and recognize the disability community as a largely untapped labor pool
