Creative Spirit US is a 501c nonprofit designed to ensure equal employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, connecting them with fair-wage positions at inclusive, forward-thinking companies. Since our founding in 2017, we’ve been utilizing our coaching, mentoring, and job placement services to resolve the 85% unemployment rate for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Thus far, we’ve had an almost 100% retention rate for all of the candidates we’ve placed. But we’re more than just a job placement service. We collaborate personally with a wide range of companies and business leaders to help them reevaluate their hiring practices and become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Our goal is to change the status quo for jobseekers with disabilities, placing at least 1 million candidates in fair-wage jobs by 2030, as part of our #HireDifferent agenda.
