By the Disability.gov Team
Since 2011, Disability.gov has proudly featured individuals with disabilities who have achieved employment success in our “No Boundaries” Photo Project. As we launch our fourth installment of the series, we celebrate the diverse skills, talents and life stories of each participant we have profiled so far. From Anupa, a lawyer who was featured in our first year of the project, to Brian, a young entrepreneur and photographer who was featured just last year, every “No Boundaries” participant has truly exemplified what people with disabilities can accomplish when given the opportunity.
Now, we are searching for four more accomplished individuals with disabilities to showcase. Volunteers for this project will be chosen to represent diversity in age, ethnicity and nature of disability. Photographs and profiles of participants will depict inclusion in workplace settings – for example, someone with a mobility disability who uses assistive technology on the job or a young adult with autism transitioning to the workforce.
The photo shoot will occur during the week of May 2, 2016 in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Please note that Disability.gov cannot provide monetary compensation or reimbursement for any travel expenses. Once participants have been selected, the Disability.gov team will confirm a date and time for the session.
If you are interested, please email your full name, phone number, location and a few sentences about why you would like to participate in the “No Boundaries” Photo Project to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 25, 2016. Please include “No Boundaries” in the subject line of your email.
