|RespectAbility is looking to recruit top talent with and without disabilities for their National Leadership Program. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for people with disabilities. They have a fully accessible and warm office, and are located on the metro line just outside of Washington, DC. Also, there are intern housing options in the area.
They will accept 12 outstanding and diverse young leaders from around the country who want to advance disability issues and who want careers in media, public policy or advocacy. Graduates of the program have gone on to work at the White House, run for office, work for top advocacy organizations and think tanks and attend top graduate schools. This is a fantastic opportunity for young leaders to get the skills and contacts they need to succeed. This summer, fellows will work to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in Hollywood, educational and employment opportunities for youth with disabilities, organize a national summit in the US Capitol and more. Fellows will meet elected officials, experts, celebrities and do hands on work that will really move the needle!
Please apply or help spread the word. The application deadline for the summer program is on April 17th. If you have any questions, please email the director of the program, Dr. Shonda McLaughlin at: ShondaM@RespectAbilityUSA.org.
