  • Who we are
    2
    • Think Beyond the Label is a national campaign—launched in January 2010—which focuses on making the business case for employing people with disabilities.
    • The collaboration is a partnership of state health and human service agencies with MIG grants that have undertaken state and federally funded projects designed to enhance the systems that provide opportunities for people with disabilities to enter the workforce.
    • It also includes corporations committed to raising awareness that hiring people with disabilities makes good business sense.
    • Health and Disability Advocates (HDA), a national non-profit organization and technical assistance center promoting income security and improved access to health care, coordinates the campaign as its fiscal agent.
    • Our message is simple: labels get in the way, but disabilities rarely do.
  • Making a splash
    3
    • The Think Beyond the Label campaign has generated a lot of buzz and critical acclaim from the media to the White House to activists to business leaders nationwide (including Boeing).
    • Alana Wallace, our actor in the “Marie” television spot, appeared on the Today Show to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the ADA and to speak about Think Beyond the Label.
    “…not your father’s ‘hire the handicapped’ campaign…the campaign takes a light-hearted tack rather than a sober or earnest tone.” – Stuart Elliott, The New York Times
    “This commercial is awesome…ThinkBeyondtheLabel.com addresses stigma around hiring disabled employees” – Livestrong Lance Armstrong Foundation, via Twitter [@LIVESTRONG]
    “Here’s something to RT www.thinkbeyondthelabel.com. Think Beyond the Label” OSCAR-winning actress MarleeMatlin, via Twitter [@MarleeMatlin]
    “Seriously consider your Diversity Branding strategy in 2010 and getting your company affiliated with a campaign like ThinkBeyondtheLabel.com. Be the company that attracts a diverse pool of talent.” – Kelly Dingee, Fistful of Talent
