About Us

WorkABILITY Commitment

Since the inception of the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability in 2015, we have funded innovations that foster greater self-determination, adaptive technology, and advancement of individuals with disabilities in growing industry sectors.

"Let us be disrupters and agents of change and bring true meaning to diversity in the workforce."
