Today’s leaders in government and industry recognize the need to develop innovative approaches to support Americans, including those with significant barriers to employment, gain access to high-quality jobs and pursue rewarding careers
Wheelhouse Group works at the intersection of talent, education, workforce systems, industry, advocacy and government to break down barriers, create opportunity, build new skills and support full employment for vulnerable groups.
We lead government and nonprofit programs to increase the employment of people with disabilities, youth, veterans and those returning to work.
Our team develops robust programs and technical assistance for industry partners, jobseekers, workforce systems, and community organizations around such topics as inclusion, WIOA, and digital accessibility.
The work we do has received international recognition including the 2021 Zero Project Award for our cross-sector partnership promoting accessible technology in employment.
Where we’re making an impact…
Transforming Workplaces Through Inclusion
Despite national attention on the value of inclusion in the workplace, people with disabilities have an unemployment rate double the national average. To close this gap, we are working with the Department of Labor to provide support to the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).
We specialize in innovative solutions to break down employment barriers to underrepresented communities, create career pathways and to develop the nation’s workforce. We provide expert guidance, project management, communications support, comprehensive technical assistance and training.
