the Story of Creative Spirit Co-Founder Laurel Rossi at the NYSE

New York, NY (November 5, 2021) – The ABLE Channel, the first streaming service devoted to healthcare programming, has partnered with Creative Spirit on programming to support the day-long Virtual Summit in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, hosted by the New York Stock Exchange. Participants in the event learned about accessibility, DE&I standards, and the global movement toward Inclusive Hiring. The summit is provided in the link below, in its entirety at VoyaOmnicon Virtual Event

Creative Spirit is the first global job placement service and platform focused on integrated employment for a wide variety of talented individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Creative Spirit’s ability to match individuals with jobs via technology, coupled with professional job support, will become the new model for hiring. The ABLE Channel, known for story-driven consumer programming, is expanding its programming slate and health partnerships, and the content created for Creative Spirit and the NYSE furthers ABLE Channel’s vision of creating entertaining, credible, and mission-driven content for partners around the globe. Additionally, Laurel Rossi is featured in the ABLE Channel Original “Together We Are Able”, a groundbreaking one-hour television special that elevates the conversation about inequality and workforce capability while showcasing ten remarkable individuals who prove that disabilities are not obstacles.

“We believe credible authoritative health programming can benefit millions of viewers struggling with a range of health issues,” explains ABLE Channel founder and CEO, Brian McCourt. “Today’s consumers need to rely on a credible, accurate medical information to inform their own health and wellness. This program for Creative Spirit helps further the important work of achieving more diverse, more inclusive workplaces.”

Laurel Rossi, Co-Founder of Creative Spirit US, adds “85% of people living with disabilities are unemployed and that is unacceptable. Like everyone else, people living with disabilities are looking to contribute to society and be financially independent. Our goal at Creative Spirit is to find opportunities for ambitious and talented individuals with a variety of disabilities and match them with employers who will foster an inclusive and integrated workplace while compensating these employees at a fair wage. This wonderfully successful summit at the New York Stock Exchange helps shine a light on this global movement.”
