Mission Statement

Increasing Economic Opportunities for People with Disabilities

disabilityworks, an initiative from the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the City of Chicago, is designed to increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities throughout Illinois.

Description

Hub for Three Groups with disabilityworks

Employers, people with disabilities, and disability/employment service providers are strategically linked:

  1. Employers will understand the business benefits of hiring qualified people with disabilities and gain access to a large pool of productive and diverse employees. Participate in Disability Awareness Training for Businesses.
  2. People with disabilities have access to job opportunities and services. Access our CPLN list of Job Placement & Occupational Training Providers.
  3. Providers are a resource to employers and people with disabilities, training individuals and referring them to the right jobs. The term "providers" in this site refers to organizations that offer job readiness, job training, job placement, and educational services to people with disabilities.
