About

Inclusively is the professional network transforming the way candidates with disabilities, mental health conditions, and chronic illnesses find jobs and connect with inclusive employers. Inclusively's innovative employment platform and job matching technology allows disabled job seekers to input their experience, skills, and needed Success Enablers (workplace accommodations) and find jobs with employers that are creating more educated, accommodating, and accessible workplaces. 

In addition to providing employers a more effective and efficient way to connect the right candidates to the right jobs, they also offer digital training services, accessibility scorecards, and a team of experts to make tangible progress to their DEI goals and onboard new hires successfully. 

1 in 4 of us have or will have, a disability during our working-age years and Inclusively is proud to be leading traditional recruitment into a new era of authentic inclusion that focuses on acquiring and retaining top talent while optimizing for the long-term success of individuals with disabilities to build sustainable livelihoods and careers.

Founding Story

Founder Charlotte Dales has a technology background and watched her cousin Cameron become the first licensed aesthetician in the state of Florida with Down Syndrome.

Value creating economic equality for people with disabilities, as everyone deserves the financial independence and self-esteem that comes with building a meaningful career. Driving inclusion across industries and employers through measurable actions. Inclusion drives innovation by having an employee-base that is representative of the diverse customers that employers serve.

Testimonials

Inclusively has become an important component of our talent acquisition process. They have a fantastic selection of candidates and within the first few weeks, we made our first placement and have gone on to hire two more candidates! The Inclusively team supported us throughout the journey so we felt equipped to bring on employees with disabilities, and working with them could not have been easier. Annie Moore is a dream to partner with – her professionalism and response time are second to none. We look forward to continuing to work with Inclusively!
