This DETAC webinar highlighted the utilization of creative technological platforms to help grantees connect people with disabilities to competitive, integrated employment (CIE) opportunities. Grantees have a responsibility to engage with employers at various levels which can be daunting when employers are consumed with the burdens of productivity, new COVID protocols, and staffing shortages. This webinar showcased Mentra, a talent-hiring platform that intelligently matches neurodiverse individuals with employers that value their strengths. Participants also heard from an employer that hires individuals with disabilities through partnering with Mentra, including an individual with lived experience who shared their journey about utilizing Mentra’s platform to obtain meaningful employment.
