We can now (finally) say our goodbyes to 2020. While this was arguably the worst year ever, I am feeling confident that 2021 is going to be a year of change for the chronically illness and disability communities.

The pandemic has drastically affected everyone across the globe but according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1 in 5 workers with disabilities lost employment, compared with 1 in 7 workers in the general population. Our community has continued to be left out of the workforce and now is the time for change. These stats may just be numbers to some people, but to me, they are my motivation for continuing to build and grow Chronically Capable.

If you are new to these monthly articles and wondering why I’m so passionate about remote opportunities for all, 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 flexible job opportunities. 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!

On that note, I’d love to share seven remote work opportunities available this January.

1. Swiftly

During COVID, one thing I’ve really missed is public transportation. I miss riding the metro all around the city and knowing I always had a reliable way to get where I needed to go. Swiftly is improving public transit across the globe, offering its data technology to public transportation companies. Listed benefits include medical, dental and vision coverage along with unlimited paid time off and more.

Data nerds — this company is for you!

At Prisma, you’ll have the opportunity to work remotely. It also offers 24 vacation days, which might be necessary after the year we’ve all just had.
