Did you know that more than 8 out of 10 adults with developmental differences are unemployed, and a major hurdle they face is the lack of job opportunities in our communities?
Well, that is about to change thanks to a new initiative from Lee Container, an Iowa-based company, the J. Donald & Laurelle Lee Family Foundation Fund, Autism Speaks, Best Buddies, Special Olympics – who have teamed up on a new campaign: Delivering Jobs. DELIVERING JOBS seeks to create a more inclusive workforce in the U.S. Lee Container is a family-owned business that has found success by staying true to the golden rule: treat others as you would want to be treated.
There are hundreds of thousands of people with autism and people with intellectual or developmental differences who are ready and willing to work in our communities. Our coalition is committed to specific goals that include hiring an inclusive workforce, providing training for hiring professionals, and providing guidelines for all employees.
The campaign aims to show that ALL businesses can create a workforce where people of all abilities are able to contribute and thrive.
