Last month, we recognized National Disability Employment Awareness Month, also known as NDEAM. Businesses across the nation exhibited their commitment to tackling disability employment issues. Organized by the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) of the U.S. Department of Labor, NDEAM 2021’s theme was “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.” According to ODEP, this year’s theme “reflects the importance of ensuring that people with disabilities have full access to employment and community involvement during the national recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

While I wish every month was NDEAM, and we shouldn’t talk about disability inclusion only once a year, I was excited to see the commitment from employers. Having worked in the disability/chronic illness space for almost four years now, I’ve participated in NDEAM a few times. I’ve often felt conflicted about this month, wondering, “Are companies just posting about this for the sake of attention?”

This year, I watched first-hand as companies authentically participated in NDEAM. Companies were eager to educate their employees, learn about the barriers those with disabilities face, and make true strides towards inclusion. 

The past year and a half has been hard for all of us, but we’ve also learned a lot. Companies are starting to see how easy it can be to accommodate their employees. They’re learning that when employees feel comfortable showing up as their true selves to work, they’re happier and more productive! I feel hopeful that we have moved over the hump and change is happening. 

If you are new to these monthly articles, my name is Hannah Olson and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable, a digital talent marketplace and community that connects chronically ill and disabled jobseekers to inclusive employers. We have always believed in the importance of creating space for the chronically ill and disabled to work and excel at their jobs without feeling like they have to sacrifice their health. Now, we’re working on getting employers across the globe to join us in actively supporting our community!

1. Karat

If you’re a developer or a coder, you’ve probably been through a technical interview before. While I’m not a developer, I can imagine these are challenging and daunting! That’s why I’m excited about Karat, the company who established the category of Interview Engineering to make every interview predictive, fair, and enjoyable. At Karat, you’ll have the opportunity to work for a VC-backed growing startup with an amazing company culture. With generous time off, 100% covered healthcare benefits, and the option to work remotely, this company knows what their employees need to thrive. They’re also an inclusive partner on Chronically Capable — so they’re looking to hire talent that may have health and accommodation needs.

2. Movement Strategy

I’m a marketer by trade, and when I first saw Movement Strategy’s website, I was blown away. With clients like Under Armor, Amazon Prime Video, and Warner Brothers, Movement Strategy is the social media agency powering some of our favorite brands on social media! Based in LA and NYC, the company allows employees the option to work remotely, as long as you’re open to working on Pacific hours. They have amazing benefits including 100% health care, short- and long-term disability, and even wellness programs. They’re also hiring through Chronically Capable so you can trust that they’re committed to inclusion!

3. One Team Partners

Calling all former athletes or sports enthusiasts! While I no longer consider myself an athlete, I definitely used to be one back in the day (pre-Lyme disease). One Team Partners works with Players Associations (such as the MLB or the NBA), to transform the way athletes participate in business by putting them at the center of the commercial ecosystem. So, basically, they’re helping athletes get brand sponsorships! They don’t list their benefits on their site, but they do offer employees the option to work remotely. If you’re curious about benefits such as health care or 401k, be sure to ask the hiring manager during your interview!

4. Rebate

Who likes a good tax credit? Me! As a startup founder, I’m always looking for ways to save money for the business and Rebate is making that possible for companies like ours. They help small businesses with tax credits by spreading the word about helpful government incentives and making them easier to get. They offer benefits for full-time employees, but also have contract roles available. So, if you’re looking to keep your current benefits, those contract positions may be a great fit. And heads up: they’re actively hiring on Chronically Capable so start applying now!

At New Media Ventures, you can dip your toes into venture capital with a cause. The fund supports early stage startups with missions to create progressive political change. They’re currently hiring a full-time Associate for a two-year term (100% remote), that will support and report to the Chief Operating Officer. The pay is competitive, and the benefits are superb — so don’t miss your chance to apply! Applications are due by November 8, 2021.

6. Noodle

I’m going to start out with a testimonial from one of Chronically Capable’s members who was hired at Noodle: I landed a great job with a company that strives to create an ‘inclusive’ workplace, so different from what I was used to. Chronically Capable is seeking out employers that want to work with YOU!  The team truly believes in the value a Chronically Capable person brings to the workplace.” I think this quote says it best — Noodle is a wonderful organization that supports their employees and welcomes those with health needs. If you’re a former teacher, this may be the perfect company for you, because Noodle is working to lower the cost of higher education through excellent online and hybrid programs. Benefits include the option to work 100% remote, health insurance, monthly gym stipends, and more.

7. Hopin

I first learned about Hopin in July 2020 when I attended a virtual event. I was blown away by the platform and how authentic it felt to connect with others in a virtual space. This fully-remote company is  growing rapidly in the age of COVID where virtual connectivity is crucial. They offer unlimited vacation time and flexible schedules, home office and development budgets, and the opportunity to work 100% remote from anywhere in the world. They’re also hiring rapidly, so definitely take the time to look through all of their open roles.
