Global WorkAbilities: Gaining intercultural work competencies across disability barriers

Work abroad, especially for undergraduate, non-research, have historically been limited in opportunities and financial accessibility. The global networks needed are expensive and the resources at institutions are less established. For students with disabilities, these programs are specifically difficult to access because of added barriers to workplace accommodation and competing disability policies. This program provides high-quality, safe and supported internships programs in non-targeted countries through a trusted partner organization to all students, with particular focus on students with disabilities. Existing support programs will be scaled up and stakeholder collaboration strengthened to lower barriers and ensure adequate work and living accommodation.
