Our Ability is a certified disability-owned business that creates game-changing strategies for enabling full inclusion of individuals with disabilities.  We invite both active and passive job seekers, whether or not they are currently employed, to enter their information and invite their friends and family members with disabilities to get Connected.  There is no charge to participate in the system as a candidate.  Our Ability Connect © is making the complex simple by offering a platform where candidates with disabilities can enter their skills and experience, and then receive endorsements and references that reinforce their value to future employers.  Our Ability Connect will continue to grow our candidate database, which will include new graduates to skilled executives across all disciplines, with apparent and non-apparent disabilities, those individuals who are interested in positions across all industries and sectors.  Our 2015 goal is to enroll 10,000 candidates with disabilities.
