Using the power of community to rebrand disability.

The problem

Although 15% of the world's population lives with a disability, disability is not fully understood or discussed. Most of the narratives around disability are rooted in shame, victimization and pity, thereby perpetuating social stigma and exclusion.

Our Approach

Diversability encourages communities to connect with people of all abilities through curated events and partnerships, which foster positive and productive conversations around disability and diversity. In 2018, Diversability hosted the first workshop for the disability community on careers in the Salesforce ecosystem, tackling the disability employment gap.
