Everyone at Work exists to unite smart, hardworking people with companies that see value in diversity. By investing in communities of smart people who are traditionally outside of the workforce and training employers to bring them into the fold, we can make a difference in the lives of marginalized Americans.

Founded with the charge of uniting Deaf people with good jobs in America’s lowest unemployment state, Everyone at Work is a not-for-profit employment firm that recognizes that people with disabilities and members of other disadvantaged groups have abilities that are in-demand in today’s job market.

By providing accessible creative-thinking workshops to job seekers and offering cultural and disability awareness training to employers, we believe we can finally make a difference in offering decent work opportunities to all Americans.
