Join Our Team

Our Organization:

Bachelor’s in Disability is a non-profit organization working to eliminate the stigma around disability. Many of our team members identify as disabled and as part of the disability community. Our ultimate goal is to see the stereotypes that keep people from interacting with people who have disabilities, as well as keeping them out of the workforce, erased. We do this by giving disabled voices a platform to share their experiences and answer questions from non-disabled peers and employers.
