Challenge 3 - Group 2

Only 5 states have disability programs.Over 42.5 Million disabled individuals in America alone, 13%.

Initially being inspired by professor V's mother, we did extensive reaserch on how individuals with disibilities live and how they are able to monuver around their disibility.

(FIGURE 3. Top 10 Causes of Disability Among adults-Survey of Income And. . ., n.d.)

Disibilities are common. It can happen to anyone.

Disibilities can be caused by:

back pain,

heart problems,

repitory problems,

Challenge 3 - Group 2

Goal eight works towards decent work for all. Our challange is directly related to this SDG as we are working towards higher employment with individuals with disabilities.

Education is extremely important as without it, the stigma towards individuals with disabilities will remain the same. This is prominant in society and hiring managers.

Challenge 3 - Group 2

"When people think disability they thinkinability; they will have more problems if they choose to hire the person. This is not only wrong but lazy. Some of these people had executive positions before they were disabled, thinking that they can’t possibly bring any value to a company is insane."

"I am personally affected by the discrimination because I have a son who is autistic. I wanted to open doors for people just like him and create opportunities where they won’t be turned away."

"What motivated you to start a company hiring only people that are autistic?"

Interview with Expert

"What advice would you give to employers who are hesitant on hiring individuals with disabilities?"

"As an expert in this field, what are some of the most common misconceptions about people living with disabilities?"

Keso Okriashvili

Dr. Dimitri Kessaris

"People with disabilities aren’t just disabled people. They are kind, patient and fair which can get lost as people grow into adulthood. Take a chance and give them the opportunity. If it doesn’t work out then you will know for sure."

Page 5 / Page 6

"I feel like it’s the limited amount of diverse jobs."

"Education plates a big role in this, people aren’t taught about disabilities and we build this stigma around it that’s completely not true."

"I feel like people with disabilities are often misrepresented. There’s this stereotype against them where they can’t do the work like someone without disabilities."

"Can you share your understanding on current societal stigma regarding people with disabilities in the workplace?"

Interview with classmate

"In your opinion, what role does education play in changing the biased mindset when hiring someone who’s disabled?"

"From your perspective, what are the barriers that prevent individuals with disabilities from accessing employment opportunities?"

"Are there any government policies that can promote equal employment and address the discrimination?"

"Not any that I can think of at the moment."

Challenge 3 - Group 2





Disabilities are over looked. They aren't seen as beings whom can be in a proffessional setting.

Limited diverse jobs.

Education is lacked in both the general population and hiring managers

Hiring managers see individuals with disiabilities as liabilities.

Findings from imersing ouselves in context

When taking the time to really observe disabled people or even the newly disabled individuals in the area, we realized most of them tend to have depression. It's sad but self explanatory, they feel out of place in a world where 90% of the world can't understand them.

Depending on the disability, the individual could be unable to work like they used to or unable completely. But here at Neymo, we found a way to combat the situation.
