Take the EmployAbility Pledge

Recognizing that businesses and organizations should reflect and be responsive to the communities in which they are located, the undersigned hereby pledges to embrace a philosophy of inclusivity. We support the employment of qualified people with disabilities and seek to provide customers and patrons of our business/organization with an environment that meets their needs for accessibility in structure, communication and interaction with our staff. We encourage other businesses and organizations to join us in taking this pledge, and are proud to join NY State and other employers who have signed the EmployAbility pledge and are leading the effort to create communities that seek to include people with all abilities.

Employers who take the EmployAbility pledge and support an inclusive workplace will receive:

  • a window decal
  • a digital badge for their website
  • recognition on the OPWDD website
