Online job portal for people with disabilities
There are 30 million people with disabilities in Latin America who don’t have a job – that’s 80% of the disabled population. Only one in five disabled people get hired, which means great loss of talent and productivity in the region.
Incluyeme.com, founded by Argentinians Natalia Ca, Gabriel Marcolongo and Paul Veltri in 2013, is the first ever job portal aimed at helping people with disabilities in Latin America overcome discrimination and find secure employment.
The portal features job offers from leading companies like IBM, HP, Securitas, Ford and Accenture, as well as ways for candidates to be updated on opportunities. Incluyeme works with all employers on inclusion programmes to ensure that job opportunities are tailored to people with disabilities so that they can properly contribute to the company.
By connecting job seekers with employers and providing them with greater visibility, Incluyeme.com is working to reduce unemployment among differently abled people, while growing a diverse and capable workforce for local companies. The site also gets across a clear message that companies should focus on the talents, not limitations, of people with physical handicaps.
Since Incluyeme.com launched three years ago, the social enterprise has helped over 1,000 people across Latin America, and now operates in Chile, Peru, Mexico, Brazil, Spain and Venezuela. It has also been selected by Start-Up Chile to develop their services in new countries, with 20 million Pesos in seed funding. Find out more at www.incluyeme.com
