Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean by ‘disability’?

No, we welcome people with all kinds of disabilities. This includes, but is not limited to, physical, chronic, mental health, learning, neurological disabilities, etc. We follow the ADA definition of disability.

I'm not in a technical field, can I still apply?

Yes, if you're interested in roles such as marketing, business development, H.R. & research within technology companies, you can still join the community although we can best support people in technical fields.

As an individual, how can I support your mission?

If you're an industry professional, you can join as a mentor or have your employer as a partner. 1 in 2 people either have a disability or know someone with a disability — so sharing our mission forward could change someone's life.

Is there a cost to join the community?

No, this community is 100% free for people with disabilities to join and be a part of.

How does NextBillion work with employers?

Employers partner with NextBillion on recruiting and talent services in order to support diversity & inclusion efforts, hire top technical talent and comply with diversity mandates.

Why should my organization hire people with disabilities?

People with disabilities bring unique value (Getting to Equal 2018 — Accenture), have higher job retention rates, are proven to perform equally or better than average, and are not expensive to accommodate. It is the world's largest minority group, so we hope you don't miss out on untapped talent.

Are you a non-profit or a for-profit organization?

NextBillion is a for-profit social enterprise based in Vancouver, Canada. We believe in building a sustainable company with a bold mission to scale our impact beyond anything previously seen in the disability inclusion space.
