Hear from our team membersKnowing how many patients we serve, and that 1 in 4 people have a disability, and 1 in 5 are a caregiver means that the AdaptAbilities Inclusion Resource Group allows me to contribute to the organization in truly meaningful ways.

Hear from our team membersThe opportunity to participate in Inclusion Resource Groups allows me to engage in topics I am passionate about outside of work. The ability to collaborate with other likeminded individuals to make a difference is a huge driver for me. IRGs also help me become more aware of topics I am not educated in, therefore helping me to become a better ally to others. Melena StrehlowSenior Specialist, Transformation & Innovation
