Introducing Inclusivity

Gina Kline and Eve HillAt Inclusivity, we know that when people with disabilities are fully included in their workplaces and communities, everyone benefits. We all win when we’re all in.

We started Inclusivity to help organizations, businesses, and educational institutions implement highly effective policies to rapidly scale up the integration of people with disabilities into the workforce, and capitalize on the talents and tenacity of a group of people who have a tremendous amount to contribute.

As civil rights attorneys in the federal government, we had a leading role in implementing sweeping federal law and policy changes geared towards helping people with disabilities transition out of segregated, subminimum wage jobs and into integrated employment at competitive wages.

Our experiences and knowledge of federal law make us uniquely positioned to navigate these new complementary requirements and to take advantage of the wealth of resources available for organizations to use.

Workforce Development, Innovation, and Opportunity: Our work helps government agencies, service providers, and employers ensure people with disabilities and other diverse groups have a seat at the table when it comes to preparing for and obtaining 21st century jobs.

Supply Chain: “Made in America” shouldn’t mean exploiting people with disabilities. We help companies identify and divest from any vendors that exploit workers with disabilities in their supply chains.

Youth Transition from School to Work: We provide counsel and advice on federal laws and court rulings to ensure young people with disabilities have access to competitive integrated employment and postsecondary education.

Accessible Technology: “Fix it and forget it” doesn’t work for accessible technologies that are constantly evolving. We help organizations make sure their technology starts accessible and stays accessible.

Criminal Justice Reform: ADA and Olmstead requirements can benefit police, prosecutors and defenders, courts, corrections, and communities to ensure people with mental illness and other disabilities are treated, rather than unnecessarily incarcerated.

Higher Education: College and university disability student services offices are often siloed and under-resourced. We help universities institute best practices to enable students with disabilities to succeed in college and in their careers.

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I): We consider it our mission to help companies and government agencies find, hire, and retain talented people with and without disabilities.
