Disability Inclusion Business Partnership Consultant
My name is Laura Andert!
I am so excited to be a part of the team at Inclusive Networking!
Early on in my career path with having a disability, I taught myself the importance of persevering and advocating for myself. I knew if I wanted to chase after working for companies that I could see fit for myself, I had to do those two pivotal actions to get into companies. From working in the restaurant field in my early 20’s along then having the drive to work in the hospitality field for several years, I knew deep down my passion had to be awakened again to help make a difference for individuals with disabilities in the workplace. So, changing gears in my career path, I set my sights on working for an accessibility company. I learned a lot about not only digital accessibility for individuals with disabilities but accessibility in the workplace.
With learning all about accessibility, I knew I was ready to take the next step further out into the world to teach other companies about how important it is to hire employees with disabilities. No one should be left out with limitations. As a Disability Inclusion Business Partnership Consultant, I have this determination of helping Inclusive Networking help make a difference in educating various companies further about inclusion; help to make customized positions within companies. This truly is a dream job I have been waiting for and I can’t wait to continue to bring my insights, talents, and strengths to the table and thrive in my role!
