The Foundation is proud to have organized Project Able, a coalition of financial services professionals interested in finding ways to connect with the New York and New Jersey disabled community through firm’s diversity and inclusion efforts.
Project Able’s Mission: to offer exposure to rewarding professional fields in the financial services industry to qualified students with disabilities by sponsoring career awareness events and a college internship program.
The Project has plans underway to:
- Establish a College Internship Program to match qualified candidates with disabilities with employers who will provide work experience that could ultimately lead to full-time employment
- Sponsor Career Awareness Events that expose (high school and college) students with disabilities to professions in which they may have interest and can find meaningful work, and build rewarding long-term careers
- Establish a High School Internship Program for students with disabilities
