Blue-J is partnering with an organization which teaches self-advocacy skills to the disabled.
A major goal of Blue-J is to help people with disabilities achieve their potential. Blue-J achieves this by predominantly hiring individuals on the Autistic spectrum. As to the potential of these employees, the owner of the company states “We tap into that potential, but they do it themselves and we bring it out.” Blue-J’s participation in the everybody works campaign is related to this goal because in participating in the campaign, Blue-J is assisting other businesses in adopting this goal.
Another goal of Blue-J which is consistent with the everybody works campaign is the company’s goal of educating the public about Autism spectrum disorders as a central goal of the everybody works campaign is to educate self-advocates. Blue-J extensively teaches its employees how to advocate for themselves in addition to participating in conferences where representatives of the company educate the participants about the business model.
