The Covid-19 Pandemic is Increasing the Employment Gap
People with disabilities are too often the first to be laid off and last to be rehired. Meanwhile businesses are increasing their investments in IT and security infrastructure to accelerating their digitization.
We build Bridge to Opportunity Academies in partnership with mission aligned organizations in each community. We have several programs in place, with additional programs planned in the US, Europe, Asia and Africa. Dates in parenthesis are planned launch dates.
We are honored to have some great partners all over the world and to be recognized for our joint work.
