As part of our Special Projects, we provide knowledge, strategies, and holistic solutions to large companies, enabling them to implement disability inclusion programs at scale and nationwide. We also empower small and mid-sized companies to adopt best-in-class disability inclusion programs and to test and learn new strategies through our ICC program.
