Help Us Recognize inclusive employers
Shopability is a campaign designed to recognize businesses across Jacksonville that employ individuals with Autism, Down syndrome and other intellectual and developmental differences (IDDs).
We are in the process of creating a searchable, interactive map to identify the hundreds of companies in our area who offer employment and internship opportunities to our neighbors with IDDs. We want to make it easy to locate and support these businesses. But we need YOUR help in reaching our goal of identifying every inclusive employer in Jax!
Check out the Shopability map to support businesses that employ people with IDDs in our area.
If you don't see your favorite inclusive business represented, make sure to submit a business listing by January 15, 2021.
Connect with local nonprofits who help individuals with IDDs find tailored employment opportunities.
March 6, 2021
Save the date for Shopability Saturday coming up on March 6, 2021! This will be a citywide celebration inviting the entire community to shop or support local businesses that choose to see the abilities of individuals with IDDs and celebrate their contributions.
Stay tuned for more information!

The Shopability map is under construction by JU Geography students as a service learning experience. We are grateful for JU’s partnership in making our community more Connectable.
