Eighty-five percent of working-age adults with developmental disabilities are unemployed. I’m In To Hire hopes to decrease that number.
I’m In To Hire is an initiative founded by Best Buddies International that aims to create a more inclusive workplace by promoting the business benefits of hiring those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
