Underestimated

Community Members Share Experiences

Do you ever feel underestimated? In a special series created by CortreeTV, we talk to entrepreneurs, scientists, and employment services clients on what it’s like navigating the workforce – or starting a business – as a person with a disability.

What’s the biggest accessibility barrier in your life? Sometimes all it takes to find a way through it is a little advice and inspiration from someone whose been there.

We explore first jobs, dream jobs and everything in between.

Whether you’re a hiring manager or a person with a disability looking for work and feeling daunted by the challenges ahead, this series has something for you.

Series launches April 7, 2022. Episodes drop every Thursday.
