The economy as the driving force of social change
We are myAbility, a social enterprise committed to a fair and barrier-free society.
It all began with Gregor Demblin and Wolfgang Kowatsch in 2009 launching the first job search website - myAbility.jobs - for people with disabilities in German-speaking countries. Gregor's motivation was to fight against the many prejudices and barriers stuck in people's minds that he faced as a person with a mobility impairment. Together with Wolfgang, who was then managing director of a large online job board, they began their Mission to help companies see the potential of people with disabilities and the economic factor related to disabilities. In 2014, together with Sandra Edelmann and Michael Aumann, they founded the social management consulting enterprise myAbility.
We assist companies to create an inclusive corporate culture, keep running Europe's largest german-speaking corporate network on the subject of inclusion – the myAbility economic forum – and support students and graduates to enter the world of work in the myAbility Talent® Program. The fact that Social Impact must be made measurable is also very important to us.
